"Tenor saxophonist Leo Richardson has been raising eyebrows around the scene for some time now, notably in the Late Late Show at Ronnie Scott’s, but biding his time about making his first album. I’ve just played it twice, end to end, and I can’t remember hearing a more impressive debut. The energy of it is quite ferocious at times, but all under control and technically perfect. That goes for the whole band. The style is hard bop, but music as good as this is beyond category." *****

LEO RICHARDSON QUARTET

Tenor saxophonist Leo Richardson is best known for his honest, straight-ahead, contemporary hard-bop style. His debut album "The Chase" was selected by The Times newspaper as one of the Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2017 and one of the Top 100 Albums of all music genres. Featured in this stellar quartet is Derby's own Ed Richardson (no relation) on drums.
