John Richmond

Born:

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. His early recording as leader, "Round Once," on Consolidated Artists, featured pianist Mike Longo, bassist Buster Williams, and drummer Al Harewood, received favorable critical reviews and radio air play and was a "feature pick" of Cash Box magazine

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
