As some of the critics have predicted, Mike Richmond the Philadelphia-born award-winning bass player has put together another quality cello album here again.
Richmond has vast experience including playing with Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Horace Silver, to mention a few is also a dedicated educator receiving a Teacher of the Year Award from New York University (1994). After the release of his previous album 'The Pendulum' (SCCD31826) Richmond has been frequently performing cello as his main instrument.
"Mike Richmond's beautiful new recording - his 11th as a leader - is the first on which he plays cello exclusively...Richmond and his quartet of seasoned players give the music a 'singing' quality something Richmond seeks in all his playing." - Donald Elfman, New York City Jazz Record (on 'The Pendulum' SCCD31826)
