Richard Boulger

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).
