Leeds Jazz Festival 2019: Leo Richardson Quartet

Leeds Jazz Festival 2019: Leo Richardson Quartet

Details

Without a doubt, Leo Richardson is widely recognised to be one of London’s leading Jazz Tenor Saxophonists, best known for his honest, straight-ahead, contemporary hard-bop style. His most significant influences include John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon, Horace Silver and Art Blakey.

In 2009, Leo was awarded a scholarship to study Jazz at the prestigious Trinity College of Music. Since graduating, Leo has been making a name for himself on the London Jazz scene. He has become an in demand side man and has collaborated with many well known musicians at acclaimed venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, The Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, o2 Arena, Cadogan Hall, The Vortex Jazz Club and Glastonbury Music Festival. In 2015, Leo was nominated in the London Music Awards for Rising Star in the Jazz category. He regularly hosts the Late Late Show at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club with his own quartet.

Leo’s quartet consists of killer artists who are all standouts in their own right. RICK SIMPSON, winner of the Yamaha Scholarship Prize for Outstanding Jazz Musicians, resides on piano. TIM THORNTON, one of the most sought-after young musicians of his generation, drives a hugely vibrant, powerful double bass. And, in keeping with the talent in this line-up, the exceedingly diverse ED RICHARDSON rounds things off on drums.
