JAZZ SAXOPHONE LEGEND
 RICHIE COLE
(The Buddy Rich Big Band, Manhatten Transfer, Doc Severinson)


www.RichieCole.com

with Grammy Nominee Alex Otey-Keyboards, Vocals www.AlexOtey.com  
 Chris Clark-Upright Bass    Darrell "Double D" Soltesz-Drums, Percussion 
 


Richie started playing alto saxophone when he was 10 years old in his home town of Trenton, New Jersey. Influenced by Sonny Rollins and Charlie Parker, Cole’s talent and dedication won him a full scholarship from Downbeat Magazine to the Berklee School of Music in Boston.

His professional career began in 1969 when he joined the Buddy Rich Big Band. And after stints with the Lionel Hampton Big Band and the Doc Severinsen Big Band, Cole formed his own quintet and toured worldwide, doing a great deal to popularize bebop and his own “Alto Madness” style in the 70’s and early 80’s.

Cole has performed and recorded with the great vocalese artist Eddie Jefferson, the Manhattan Transfer, Bobby Enriquez, Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Stitt, Art Pepper, Tom Waits, Boots Randolph, and Nancy Wilson, to name just a few of his musical collaborations.  Notably, Cole has performed at the Village Vanguard and Carnegie Hall as well as gave a command performance for the Queen of England.

Cole has recorded over 50 albums and CDs, including his top hit album “Hollywood Madness” (1979 Muse Records) and his tribute album to Leonard Bernstein, “Richie Cole Plays West Side Story” (1997 Music Masters Jazz). A prolific composer, Cole also finds time to arrange for full big bands, symphony orchestras and frequent performances at jazz festivals worldwide. Moreover, he enjoys sharing his love of music with younger generations and is active recording, touring and presenting university master classes.

DAVID STONE - THE JOHNNY CASH EXPERIENCE







 
David Stone: The Johnny Cash Experience is a Broadway-quality show that plays predominantly to a new generation of fans too young to have known the real thing in its zenith.  It is NOT a cheap “Impersonation.”


David Stone: The Johnny Cash Experience takes the audience through the late country legend's career, covering Early Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash & June Carter, and the Folsom Prison Concert Era. Those who see his performance will know what it must have been like to see the real Johnny Cash in concert -- his voice, mannerisms, and his band are wholly true to the legend.

David Stone: The Johnny Cash Experience is the only Johnny Cash Tribute ever to be selected by the State of California (even over Johnny's original band) to play the 40th anniversary commemorative concert at San Quentin State Prison on February 24, 2009, celebrating the historic performance of Johnny Cash at the facility in 1969.




  Performed shows in New York City for  Master Guitarist - OZ NOY, KEITH CARLOCK (Drums - STEELY DAN/STING), WILL LEE (Bass - THE DAVID LETTERMAN SHOW, THE FAB FAUX), RITCHIE CANNATA (Sax - BILLY JOEL).
