About Richie Cole

Richie gains his musical richness through affiliations with many of the world's jazz luminaries as well as through years of performing at every major jazz festival and club and writing well over 3000 arrangements and many classic jazz compositions.

Richie Cole's virtuostic alto saxophone playing is widely considered some of the best of the bebop genre.

Touted as a young musical 'lion" and "the keeper of the flame", referring to the tradition of hot bebop alto saxophone players, in his days with the Buddy Rich Big Band and Johnny Carson's Tonight Show Band in his early career, Richie soon chose to cast out on his own, fronting his band, "Altomadness" and developing associations with the likes of Eddie Jefferson. "Altomadness" is never a fixed membership, but constantly changing and evolving to include new talents he encounters in his journeys.

Richie Cole is currently at his musical lifetime peak as a creative musician and composer. He continues to inspire as he is inspired by life's madness.
