Renowned as champion of new, genre-busting music, this Yamaha Performing Artist was named the 2008 Brass Herald International Personality of the Year.
With a reputation unique in the trumpet world, combining singular virtuosity, deep lyricism, and mastery of improvisation in classical as well as jazz idioms, he has been called “One of the finest virtuosos of our time” (Brass Herald, 2018) “a standout soloist with the power, range and flexibility to rival Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw,” (DownBeat, 2014) and “among the very best trumpet soloists in the world today.” (Journal of the International Trumpet Guild, 2011)
A veteran of the acclaimed chamber ensemble Rhythm & Brass, jazz legend Joe Henderson's Quintet and Sextet, the Chicago Jazz Ensemble, and the Brass Band of Battle Creek, his 100 of soloist engagements include appearances with the Phoenix Symphony and Thailand Philharmonic Orchestras, the U.S. Army Field Band and Tokyo Symphonic Winds, England's Fodens Brass Band, Spanish Brass, Boston Brass, and the U.S. Air Force's Airmen of Note Jazz Ensemble.
His latest CD, the critically-acclaimed Freedom of Movement: 21st Century Trumpet Concertos was named a top-10 finalist for 4barsrest.com’s 2018 Solo CD of the Year. The Journal of the ITG called it “A triumph of virtuosity and musicianship” (March 2019).
Richardson has taught at VCU in Richmond since 2002, and served as International Tutor in Trumpet at England’s Royal Northern College of Music from 2012-2015.
