Richard Elliot was born in Scotland and grew up in Los Angeles, where he started playing saxophone while in middle school. It was with Tower of Power that many first heard his virtuosity on tenor saxophone. He was touring with ToP for five years, but by the late ‘80s, he left them to launch his solo career. Since then, Richard has released more than 20 albums as a leader, but one of his favorite projects was the collaborative release “Summer Horns”, which found him teaming up with Dave Koz, Gerald Albright and Mindi Abair. The CD was nominated for a Grammy (Best Pop Instrumental Album). His latest album, “Summer Madness”, is funky, but also celebrating his R&B roots. Accompanied by his band and two other horn men, trumpeter/trombonist Rick Braun, who also produced the album, and baritone saxophonist Curt Waylee, the music was created from scratch as Richard and his handpicked musicians formulated and honed their ideas in the studio. The result of these impromptu jams: An album that touches down on a variety of moods and styles along the way, from Latin- and African-inspired funk to soul jazz, even flirting with fusion.
