Rick McLaughlin

Prolific bassist/composer Rick McLaughlin performs and records with a number of Boston�s all-star ensembles including the Grammy-nominated Either/Orchestra and the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra. He has also performed in concert halls and jazz clubs around the world. Once called "one of my favorite bassists" by the legendary George Russell, he also leads the versatile Rick McLaughlin Trio.
