Trumpeter Richard Williams: "New Horn In Town"

Richard Williams (1931-1985) was an incredible trumpeter and a powerful voice in his chosen horn. Richard recorded with John Handy, Booker Ervin, Yusef Lateef, Oliver Nelson and was a member of the hottest Jazz cauldron of the time: The Charles Mingus Jazz Workshop. He played in numerous big bands, symphony orchestras and Broadway pit bands and did studio work but he only made one album under his name and it's tonight's Jazz Feature. It was done in November of 1960 and called "New Horn In Town". It features Richard with alto saxophonist/flutist Leo Wright (who didn't record enough for me taste), pianist Richard Wyands, bassist Reginald Workman and a young drummer who had played with Wes Montgomery and his brothers named Bobby Thomas. The album is well planned and well-rehearsed and contains two fine old standards plus Benny Golson's "I Remember Clifford". Richard Wyands contributes one composition to the set and Richard Williams does three. Although this album is hardly ground breaking or revolutionary it is fine solid Modern Jazz. The album is well paced and the band is tight. "New Horn In Town" is well worth hearing so check it out!
