Rodney Richardson​/Joe Herrera Quartet

Tickets: $12/$10 students

Rodney Richardson is a jazz guitarist and educator from the Washington, DC area who recently relocated to the great jazz city of Chicago, Illinois. Rodney has played in a number of ensembles including DC’s only resident big band the 17-piece Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra, and the afro-beat, vintage inspired Funk Ark, as well as leading his own group The Rodney Richardson Trio. And Rodney has recently secured the guitar spot in the Chicago-based Great Postmodern Nightmare big band. Rodney began studying guitar at the age of 12. He then attended the prestigious Duke Ellington School of the Arts and Howard University, where he earned both bachelors and masters degrees in jazz studies.

Rodney has performed with jazz greats Lee Konitz, Freddie Redd, Donald Byrd, Keter Betts, Yotam Silberstein, Yusef Lateef, Butch Warren, Jimmy Heath, Teddy Charles and many others.

Though well-versed in many genres and constantly exploring and expanding his repertoire, Rodney’s music is rooted in the tradition of jazz. Drawing from some of his major musical influences, including John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Bud Powell, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Barney Kessel, and Wayne Shorter, Rodney collaborates with the many talented DC and Chicago-based musicians, constantly striving to preserve and evolve the sound of jazz.
