Richard Cole

Fans, critics and musicians place Richard Cole in the first rank of his generation's players. A nationally acclaimed talent, Richard is among the most in-demand musicians in the burgeoning jazz scene in the Pacific Northwest. Beside work with such jazz greats as Randy Brecker, Dave Holland, Adam Nussbaum, Julian Priester and John Fedchock, he has toured regularly with fusion star Dan Siegel, performed with r&b legends Gladys Knight, The Temptations and The Four Tops while also composing and performing his own music. Richard's music is clearly jazz, following forward from the intense traditions of the jazz masters, yet it is enriched by the many lessons learned from his wide range of musical experiences.
