Musician

Stephanie Richards

Before the release of her 2018 debut Fullmoon (Relative Pitch), Steph Richards had steadily established herself in NYC as an engaging experimentalist on the scene, recording with pioneering artists ranging Henry Threadgill, Anthony Braxton and John Zorn to David Byrne and Yoko Ono. Her sonic explorations also led to collaborations with artists ranging from Mike Kelly, Laurie Anderson/Lou Reed to Kanye West. Embracing experimental jazz, avant-rock and improvisation, her work is driven by a curiosity of how listeners interact with music and what sensory variables are open to experimentation

Video

Underbelly

Featuring the music of Stephanie Richards
Duration: 3:11

Underbelly is part of a body of inter-sensorial works for scent and sound by composer/trumpeter Steph Richards called SUPERSENSE. The music video is an animated surveillance fantasy that lives somewhere between John Carpenter's sci-fi thrillers and the Eames' Powers of Ten. The manic energy of the track first brought to mind the wildness of dancing atoms. Starting with that kernel of an idea, animator/director Cossa built outwards to create a loose paranoid narrative around the song's groovy hurtling musical figures.

Steph Richards: Supersense

Read "Supersense" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


With all the threatening weirdness and desperate surrealism that has become life in the USA, it makes absolute sense that Supersense, daring trumpeter/composer Steph Richards' third full length album, starts out like an encroaching invasion of ants, or microbes, or a disruptive, divisive, myopic political movement. As with such forward seeking rebels as Henry ...

James Carney: Pure Heart

Read "Pure Heart" reviewed by Peter J. Hoetjes


When a large ensemble like the one heard on Pure Heart contains such dynamic personalities as Ravi Coltrane, Oscar Noreiga and Dezron Douglas, it's a sure bet that a bandleader is going to have their hands full directing them through his compositions. However, with just five songs to the album, pianist James Carney is able to ...

Read "Mike Jurkovic's Best Releases of 2019" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


It was this dozen plus of recordings, among many that deserve mention, that gratefully, again and again and again, pulled my attention away from binge watching the destruction of our cherished, yet all too vulnerable democracy. These are the recordings of 2019 that made it evident that we all need to remain vigilant and engaged, or ...

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!
