Logan Richardson is next in line to carry the torch of vitality for improvised music on the alto saxophone, as well as a composer/conceptualist/educator. He is developing a way to bridge the gap between the typecasting viruses that has infiltrated music as a whole. By compacting various influences from life, including art as reality, with traditional, and modern concepts, a new voice is born in Richardson.

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.
First attending Berklee College of Music (Boston), then The New School University (NYC). Logan was able to hone his skills institutionally while, professionally applying his development on the band stand, in the City along with touring the United States, and Europe with artists such as Jason Moran, Nasheet Waits, Stefon Harris, Joe Chambers, Greg Tardy, Carl Allen, Stanley Cowell, Billy Hart, Josh Roseman, Jeff "tain" Watts, Mark Turner, Mulgrew Miller, Ralph Alessi, to name some artist associations.
Logan is the next breed of musician. Not only as an improviser, composer, and educator, but mechanically. He has studied, and professionally practiced the art form of instrumental woodwind restoration, customization, and repair, which shows a different incite to his approach on the alto horn. Logan, is an undeniable voice, and a breath of fresh air for the future of improvised music, and for the next chapter in sound.

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.
