LEO RICHARDSON QUARTET
Friday 11th March 2022
Tickets: £20.00 Seat at a shared Table for 4 /£15.00 Seat – No Table
Leo Richardson has become one of The Hampstead Jazz Club’s most favoured artist, returning time and time again to sell-out shows with his impeccable quartet. Get in quick to hear this leading Tenor Sax and his ensemble this March.
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.
The recent release of Leo’s follow up album ‘Move’, continues to make waves, alongside his notable performance and recording credits for artists which include: Jamie Callum, Gregory Porter, The BBC Proms, The Temptations, The Four Tops and The Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra.
“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. Conor Chaplin, 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.
