Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra in Concert

Dec 09, 2013 08:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Grammy-nominated Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra performs live in their last concert performance of the year as they continue to celebrate the release of their Latest CD Artistry, a Tribute to Legendary Big Band Leader Stan Kenton, which continues to get national radio exposure on Monday, December 9, 2013 at 8 p.m. (2 sets) at Typhoon located at the Santa Monica Airport.

Led by saxophone soloist/composer/arranger Kim Richmond, the 23-piece orchestra, combines the sounds of large ensemble jazz with symphonic colors and textures, featuring expansive instrumentation that includes five woodwinds, four trumpets, four tenor trombones, two French horns, Rhythm Section, Latin percussion and more. The evening of free-swinging improvisation pays tribute to legendary jazz figure Stan Kenton and his Neophonic Orchestra with “Kentonesque” jazz and Latin-style compositions - the size and scope of the master’s kinetic orchestration, rightfully known to music historians as the original “Wall of Sound,” as well the premiere of a new major work.

The Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra is comprised of Woodwinds: Alex Budman, Bob Crosby, Glen Berger, John Yoakum, Bob Carr; Trumpets: Bo O'Donnell, Ron King, Steve Huffsteter, Brian Swartz; French horns: John Dickson, Stephanie O'Keefe; Trombones: Ryan Dragon, Joey Sellers, George McMullen, George Thatcher, Bill Roper (and tuba); Rhythm: Tom Hynes (guitar), Charlie Ferguson (keyboard), Katie Thiroux (bass), Ralph Razze (drums), Scott Breadman and Dave Johnson (percussion).
