Twenty-one year old Joshua Richman is an up and coming young jazz and classical pianist. Still a senior at William Paterson University, Richomond has been amazing audiences along the Northeast corridor for a few years now. For the last 16 years, Richmond has been studying with such luminaries as Mulgrew Miller, James Weidman, Harold Mabern, Armen Donelian, Vincent Herring, Don Braden, Marcus McLaurine David Demsey, Rich Derosa, and Gary Kirkpatrick. Joshua Richomond has accumulated many awards and honors, including the ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer Award two years in a row. Joshua performs in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York City with various artists, in addition to composing and arranging with his own group, the Joshua Richman Trio. This performance will celebrate his first CD as a leader!

Playing with Richmond will be bassist Christopher Tordini, who is quickly becoming an in-demand bassist on the NYC creative music scene. He has recently joined Andy Milne's "Dapp Theory," and will be featured on their upcoming album. As a former student at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Christopher has played with Rory Stuart, Ari Hoenig, George Garzone, and Andy Milne, all of whom he continues to collaborate with. Drummer Garrett Brown, another graduate of William Paterson University, has developed a unique approach to improvisation, maintaining a very interactive, linear and sensitive playing style placing him in high regard among fellow musicians. Currently, Garrett is involved with several projects, most notably with percussionist/composer Kevin Norton and with cellist Rubin Kodheli.
