Rick McLaughlin

Prolific bassist/composer Rick McLaughlin performs and records with a number of Boston�s all-star ensembles including the Grammy-nominated Either/Orchestra and the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra. He has also performed in concert halls and jazz clubs around the world. Once called “one of my favorite bassists” by the legendary George Russell, he also leads the versatile Rick McLaughlin Trio. With a repertoire ranging from original compositions to Ellington standards to an arrangement of the second movement of the Ravel string quartet, the Rick McLaughlin Trio puts a modern spin on the drummer-less trio format made famous by groups like the Jimmy Guiffre 3 and the Oscar Peterson Trio on their critically acclaimed 2003 debut, Study of Light (Accurate).
