Contemporary jazz saxophonist to appear on September 27

Saxophonist Richard Elliot will appear at the Thornton Winery on Saturday, September 27, 2003 at 7pm. Tickets range from $50-$110; for more information call (909) 699-3021.

Richard Elliot began his career touring and recording with Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, the Pointer Sisters, and Natalie Cole. He later worked with the contemporary jazz outfit The Yellowjackets, but truly established himself as a great tenor sax player with the famed Tower of Power horn section. One of the founders of the instrumental pop movement that launched the NAC radio format, Elliot has been a leading star in the contemporary jazz genre for over 15 years.

At this concert, Elliot will be performing music from his most recent release, Ricochet (GRP Records). The album showcases Elliot's trademark style-contemporary jazz with a heavy soul and R&B groove with a modern feel. His second CD for the GRP Records label, Ricochet puts Elliot's soulful, sensuous playing front and center on an outstanding set of tunes co-written and co produced with the top names in contemporary jazz.
