Jazz writers and musicians have described his tenor saxophone sound as "big and round", "full bodied", "muscular" and his style as "fluid, solid, individual, quite varied", and he "plays with harmonic intelligence." John Richmond's live engagements and recording sessions have included work with many of the top jazz musicians of our time. He performs regularly at the Turning Point Cafe in Piermont, NY where there is an ongoing Jazz series, "Jazz at the Turning Point Cafe" that includes Monday Open Jazz sessions and a Jazz Concert series at which many notable jazz artists perform. A new CD is in the works. The CD “Live at Cecil’s” was recorded in January 2007 and features Keith Saunders, Bill Moring and Eliot Zigmund.
