Logan Richardson

Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Logan Richardson was mentored by some of the finest figures in the history of improvised music, including Jay McShann, Claude "Fiddler" Williams, and Queen Bey, in addition to having artists such as Max Roach, Shirley Scott, Jimmy Heath, Clark Terry, Kenny Burrell, Marcus Belgrave, Richard Davis as artists in residence between the ages of 15 to 19 years old. 

Currently Logan is showcasing work from his fourth album as a band leader entitled "Blues People" featuring Richardson on Alto Saxophone, and effects; Justus West, Electric Guitar, & Vocals; Igor Osypov, Electric Guitar; DeAndre Manning, Electric Bass; Ryan J. Lee, Drums. This project sonically sets Logan off into a completely different territory as he dives deeper into his roots presenting a sci-fi themed, hauntingly 80's referenced, soundtrack to his life. This album is now available on the Stretch Music/ Ropeadope and Universal Music labels worldwide.
