Leo Richardson Quartet

Dec 20 2018 20:00 - 22:30

Hampstead Jazz Club, Duke of Hamilton, 23-25 New End, Hampstead, NW3 1JD London


Leo Richardson is widely recognised to be one of London’s leading Jazz Tenor Saxophonists. He is best known for his honest, straight-head, contemporary hard-bop style and regularly hosts the Late Late Show at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club with his own quartet.

His most significant influences include John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon, Horace Silver and Art Blakey.

“I can’t remember hearing a more impressive debut

"The style is hard bop, but music as good as this is beyond category."

Dave Gelly, The Observer 5*

"When I heard this album my immediate thought was that all bets are off regarding the CD of the Year.”

Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here

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.
