Logan Richardson has been tearing it up for years now, more recently as an integral member of Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah’s inner circle (see our 2019 Montreal Jazz Festival concert review). We hear rumors of two new albums by the saxophonist slated for 2020. Pictures of studio sessions have emerged on Instagram. But the versatile altoist is constantly making moves, exploring new directions, and redefining his sonic vision. His latest venture is the brand new single “her”, penned under the producer moniker of King Richmond. The song pays homage to modern-day trap culture with the added depth of contemporary instrumental music, modern jazz, improvised sax lines and a sliver of retro 80’s vibes. Undoubtedly lo-fi, “her” is introspective, meditative, and consciousness-expanding, while marking a new beginning for the talented Richardson which we couldn’t be more excited about. Looking forward to a full EP.
