The virtuoso pianist has been compared to Brian Wilson, Miles Davis, The Beatles, and Sun Ra— but as All About Jazz said in its review of Rising Rose Records 2004 release Ghost His writing is unmistakably original ….
Nine ( Dec. 2012) is an utterly unique collection of euphonic recipes, conjuring past and future stories with a mercurial texture and a melodic narrative. It's a masterful trio recording featuring the prolific musician, producer and film composer Bruce Ditmas on Drums plus Daniel Carter and Ned Goold each sitting in for their second Rising Rose session on Tenor.
Rising Rose Bakery (2011) is a tripped out exploration of improvisational psychadelic composition. Pop sensibility. Jazz essence. A lucid incarnation. Multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter joins a select group of original musicians who have recorded on Rising Rose Records. His collaboration is instantly karmic and ignites the ensemble engine of this fluidly structured recording.
Astral Prints (2010) and Uncovered ( 2009 ) , reflect the dissolving boundaries between jazz and other forms of music, Richard's soulful improvisations, mystical tunes and transformative psychedelic production create a poetic spellbinding musical symposium, summoning synesthetic spirits in these mellifluous inventive recordings.
Downtown Music Gallery says in it's reviews of Uncovered (Rising Rose 2009) and Astral Prints (Rising Rose 2010) Richard is in a class of his own.../ would be world famous in a better balanced universe.
