Description

Since the release of 'The Pendulum' album (SCCD31826) of 2017, Mike Richmond has been performing increasingly more of cello than his main instrument double bass. Cello's greater flexibility and singing timbre seem to have captivated Richmond, whose previous cello album.

'Tones from Joan's Bones' (SCCD31851) was highly acclaimed by critics as well as by public. Here on 'La Vie En Rose' Richmond's cello again gets the front-line to perform the Great American Song Book repertoire.

"The warmth and roundness of sound Richmond achieves makes his cello an ideal front-line instrument...the sound of a cello is ideal in jazz and the only surprise is that it hasn't been used in this capacity a lot more often than it has to date. Richmond is an adventurous and imaginative soloist and here he gets to do much more than just provide a bass line". - Derek Ansel, Jazz Journal on 'Tones from Joan's Bones'

Personnel: Mike Richmond (cello), Peter Zak (piano), Jay Anderson (bass), Billy Drummond (drums).
