Leo Richardson (tenor saxophone), Piano (Rick Simpson), Double Bass (Ferg Ireland), Drums (Tim Giles)
Undoubtedly, Leo is widely recognised as one of London’s leading tenor saxophonists, best known for his straight ahead, contemporary hard-bop style. His influences include John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon, Horace Silver and Art Blakey.
After several years' honing his craft in the Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, Leo began quickly winning praise for his blistering energy and dazzling musicianship. He firmly established himself as a formidable talent and in-demand sideman. In testament to his skills, Leo counts among his credits sessions and gigs with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, TLC, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra, Willie Jones III, Joe Sanders, Dan Nimmer and Norma Winstone.
“The energy of it is quite ferocious at times, but all under control and technically perfect.” – The Guardian
Leo has released his first two albums on Ubuntu Music which earned some of the most exceptional reviews ever received by a young artist, including a first-ever 5 Star Review for a debut by the UK Guardian/Observer Sunday Newspaper, and a rave review by USA’s DownBeat Magazine. In addition, one of his albums was selected by The Times newspaper as one of the Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2017 and one of the Top 100 Albums of all music genres. The quartet will be playing new material, along with material from their most recent album.
