Landing in Pittsburgh and Loving It Madly

Read "Landing in Pittsburgh and Loving It Madly" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


Now that his early mentor, Phil Woods as left the room, Richie Cole is arguably the most genuine acolyte of classic alto Bop tradition on the jazz scene today. With four albums released over the last four years, Cole is certainly letting it all fly. Always a player of terrific technical skills, Cole's work delivers consistent ...

Richie Cole: Cannonball

Read "Cannonball" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


With Cannonball, Richie Cole and his crew deliver fourteen selections, each of which is associated with the album's namesake, Julian Cannonball Adderley. Cole has admired Adderley since their meeting when Cole was a student at Berklee School of Music. The album is a terrific salute and it once more confirms Cole as a leading flamekeeper of ...

Richie Cole: Cannonball

Read "Cannonball" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Richie Cole and Julian “Cannonball" Adderley. It's as natural as soap and water. In an interview on this site, Cole proclaimed that the famed jazz musician was his favorite altoist. Like Adderley, Cole can cover a wide range of music--from the hardest of hard bop to commercial ditties. And also like Adderley, for Cole the audience ...

Richie Cole: Latin Lover

Read "Latin Lover" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Last year alto saxophonist/arranger Richie Cole released an album called the Many Minds of Richie Cole. Latin Lover could easily have carried the same title. There are indeed many minds in Cole's head-- often seemingly incompatible with each other. Several of them are in this CD. Cole was grabbed out of Berklee School of ...

Richie Cole Alto Madness Orchestra: The Many Minds of Richie Cole

Read "The Many Minds of Richie Cole" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Alto saxophonist Richie Cole is a living, breathing anachronism and has arguably been one since he first burst out of Berklee School of Music onto the stage as featured soloist with the Buddy Rich big band in the 1970's. While many of his contemporaries were following the lead of Chuck Berry and The Beatles, ...

Read "Have Yourself An Alto Madness Christmas" reviewed by Rob Rosenblum


Christmas music is a sort of sub genre of American pop, mostly maudlin and uninspiring in its lyrics, harmony and melody. Yet, it is a perennial magnet for jazz artists. On the other end of the spectrum is Richie Cole, a brash altoist and sort of a merry prankster bebop artist. Fans and critics ...
