Logan Richardson on the JodyJazz DV NY Alto Sax Mouthpiece
"I haven't played a more beautiful sounding mouthpiece. The sound and response that I get from the JodyJazz DV NY is unlike any other. A very full, true, clear sound that can be commanded at any range or volume at will. JodyJazz has changed my opinion of finding quality craftsmanship in the modern day!!"
Logan Richardson Biography
New York City based saxophonist and composer Logan C. Richardson is a fresh new voice on the alto saxophone. His full, broad sound, wide intervallic leaps, along side of a dense harmonic approach are just the beginning of a description of Logan's unique sound. Logan's compositions encompass a whirlwind of different sounds and textures, pulling from various styles traditional and modern.
"Logan Richardson's saxophone playing is incisive, multi-dimensional and remarkably flexible, wrapping and twisting phrases into unexpected origami shapes.
Kansas City, MO is Logan's place of origin, along with being the stumping grounds for his musical beginnings and early development. He was fortunate to learn from jazz greats thru the Kansas City Jazz Institute, such as: Max Roach, Richard Davis, Ahmad Alaadeen, Shirley Scott, Kenny Burrell, Clark Terry, Frank Foster, Huston Person, Jimmy Owens, T.S. Monk, and Terry Lynn Carrington.
Now, on Greg Osby's new record label, "INNER CIRCLE MUSIC", Logan is due to release his second album, ETHOS. This will be Logan's first album on Osby's new label, INNER CIRCLE MUSIC.
Ethos is the body of work that captures an unchartered territory of timbre, intermingling with a performance of14 emotionally jarring original poetic compositions. ETHOS will show exactly where Logan Richardson has been, and greatly where it all has brought him today. As the definition goes, to properly uphold Ethos, one must be studied, and benevolent about one's chosen subject. So, this would only be the most appropriate title for this specific outing for Richardson.
