RICHARD SHULMAN Jazz Bio
Pianist/composer Richard Shulman has been exploring consciousness through Jazz in his recordings, performances and compositions since 1983. The intent behind his music is healing, connection, and the expression of beauty.
Shulman has recorded 23 of his own albums, most of which are available on the label, RichHeart Music. Trained in the classical and jazz fields, he has developed a heartfelt language in these genres while splitting his output between jazz and music for meditation, healing and inspiration.
Shulman has performed at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Art Park, the United Nations, the Kool Jazz Festival, The Amenia Peace Festival and a wide variety of other venues throughout North America and in Europe....
The Buffalo News says: Tracing down Shulman's roots could take much more space than these columns allow. His chamber jazz qualities betray a host of European classical giants. Closer to home, the Bill Evans harmonic approach is undeniable. So too is his debt to Keith Jarrett, both for his melodic solos and perhaps even more for that folksy outdoor quality.... There's also that airiness that's often associated with George Winston.
Hugh Wyatt of the New York Daily News calls Shulman most enticing... a new find... in the Keith Jarrett tradition who cleverly and interestingly weaves a number of different cultures into his music.
Don Slepian, writing in New Age Digest, lists Shulman's A Simple Gift as his favorite Jazz/New Age album.
