Rick Mandyck

Mandyck has developed one of the most remarkable and distinctive tenor saxophone sounds to be heard anywhere: big, warm, expressive and exciting. His melodic and improvisational style is a mix of pieces assimilated from his heroes (John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, Cannonball Adderly, Michael Brecker) and his original touches drawn from his own roots in the blues. Born and raised in New York, Mandyck settled in Seattle in the early '80's where he soon became a top player in clubs, concerts and recording studios. He's performed and recorded with jazz greats Mark Murphy, Billy Hart, Lawrence Marable, and Carter Jefferson and was awarded "Best NW Instrumentalist" in the 1999 Earshot Jazz Awards

The city of jny: Seattle has a jazz history that dates back to the very beginnings of the form. It was home to the first integrated club scene in America, on Jackson St in the 1920's and '30s. It saw a young Ray Charles arrive as a teenager to escape the nightmare of Jim Crow in ...

Origin Records: Creating Opportunities and Community

Read "Origin Records: Creating Opportunities and Community" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard

Rick Mandyck: The Return From Now

Read "Rick Mandyck: The Return From Now" reviewed by Paul Rauch

It was a cold Tuesday evening the last week of December. 2016 was mercifully coming to a close, this evening, a final chorus of a long blues blown soulfully, and mournfully into the night. I sat at the bar at Seattle's storied jazz spot, Tula's, in eager anticipation of the evening's performance of a quartet led ...

Rick Mandyck/Gregg Keplinger: Tribute

Read "Tribute" reviewed by Jason West

It seems fitting that, only days after last month's monster electrical storm descended upon Seattle, the duo of R. Mandyck and G.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
