Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Trumpeter/composer Richard Boulger was born in North Adams, Massachusetts. At the age of 6 he was first introduced to the trumpet by his father, who was his first teacher and mentor and taught him the importance of expressing one's “heart and spirit” through the horn.

At 18 he moved to Hartford, Connecticut where he enrolled at the Hartt School of Music and studied with alto saxophonist and Jazz master Jackie McLean. In 1996 he made his debut recording with his Hartt School associate, trombonist Steve Davis (The Moon Knows, Brownstone recordings).

Richard continued his formal education, earning a Masters degree in 1997 from Rutgers University, where he studied with trumpet “guru” Professor William Fielder. He has since continued his search for knowledge, studying with such jazz icons as trumpeters Freddie Hubbard and Donald Byrd, pianists Jacki Byard, Walter Bishop Jr., Richie Beirach, Hotep Idris Galeta, Charlie Banacos, and saxophonist George Coleman and Dave Liebman. Boulger has been equally committed to his development as a composer, studying with contemporary composers Roger Kiraly and Ludmila Ulehla. The latter, former Chair of the Department of Composition, Manhattan School of Music in New York City, stated in August 2000: “For the past three years Richard Boulger has been one of my finest students. He has developed and explored all facets of music. His musical ear and genuine artistry carries him through all details of theoretic harmony.”...
