Rich Lamb

Rich Lamb has been playing fretless, 4 string, 5 string electric basses and the upright bass professionally for 34 years. He co-founded the turn of the 80's jazz fusion band “Dry Jack” and gained worldwide recognition with his brother, pianist Chuck Lamb, which was listed as part of the new wave of fusion in Rolling Stone Magazine's History of Rock `n' Roll. With Dry Jack (completed by guitarist Rod Fleeman and drummer Jon Margolis) he performed with legendary vocalist Eddie Jefferson and avant garde sax beatnik Richie Cole and opened shows for Pat Metheny, The Dixie Dreggs, Gino Vinelli, Freddie Hubbard and McCoy Tyner among many others. And before moving from New York, Rich played with trumpeter Dave Douglas in the mid eighties.

“I just received your excellent CD. The performances are all first rate, as is the writing, and I can tell this is a CD that will be getting “heavy rotation” on my player.” - Mike Metheny, Kansas City

“...an artistically rewarding and great sounding recording with an emotional immediacy that is impressive. A high level of interactive musicianship is displayed. Perhaps the biggest revelation on this CD is the consistent sophistication of the well crafted compositions. Rich Lamb is the composer, and while there is no doubt that this is a jazz recording brimming with improvisational skill, there is an almost ”classical structure” underpinning the intelligent chord progressions and often beautiful and evocative melodies.” - Chris Brubeck, bassist/composer
