Andrew Richards

Born:

Contemporary vocalist, composer, and songwriter. Born and raised in Vermont, he now resides in New York City. With a large portion of his repertoire coming from American Traditional Music, Richards cites Jazz, Folk, and Blues as great influences upon his work.

His original music is a careful study of the human experience. Vibrancy of Andalucia, the intimate chaos of NYC, and rich traditions of a folk & mountain heritage, an intention to transcribe humanity into sound.

E.G. Phillips

E.G. Phillips is a San Francisco based songwriter who creates lyric driven songs with his own special blend of whimsy and cinematic imagery which he uses to give a wry take on dealing with the longings of the heart and the madness of existence. In possession of a degree in Geography, he comes from a country called the Midwest and his favorites include Bob Dylan and The Kinks as well as Duke Ellington...and that crowd. When it comes to his stage presence, there's a touch of satirist Tom Lehrer in the mix. As for the inspiration for his lyrics, he readily admits an unusually outsized influence by long running British sci-fi show "Doctor Who." E.G

Felipe Mendoza

Born:

Músico nacido el 23 de Mayo de 1988. Su incursión a la música no es la usual. A pesar de estar inmerso en ella desde pequeño con los discos de música clásica, boleros, música colombiana y demás que había en su casa y de tomar ocasionalmente clases de piano y guitarra en escuelas de barrio, no descubre el jazz, específicamente a John Scofield, hasta cuando entró a la universidad estudiando otra carrera. En el 2009 conoce al maestro Óscar Acevedo quien por un tiempo le ofrece guía en el género, y que posteriormente le presenta al maestro Enrique Mendoza, con quien estudia durante la mayor parte de su carrera en la Javeriana, iniciada en el año 2012

Musician

Fred Tompkins

Born:

Fred Tompkins was born in St. Louis in 1943. After high school he played tenor saxophone in and around his home town for several years before beginning the formal study of music at the St. Louis Insitute of Music, in 1964. By this time his strongest influences were jazz artists such as John Coltrane, Art Blakey, and the Jazz Messengers and the M.J.Q., and classical composers such as Paul Hindemith and Béla Bartók.

His earliest compositions, as originally recorded on the album, Compositions of Fred Tompkins, showed a natural tendency to combine those genres into his own style. Some of the pieces tended to exploit a dramatic contrast between genres, but soon the transitions became smoother and the styles more synthesized. The best of those early pieces and the best pieces from his subsequent and more fully developed album of 1975, Somesville, can now be heard on the compilation CD, FANFARE 8, The Early Works. [NOTE: The videos uploaded on AAJ represent Tompkins' free improv style of performance; to hear samples of his compositions, please visit the CD page on his website: http://www.tompkinsjazz.com/albums/]
