Grammy-nominated Kim Richmond has been around for many years playing with
the likes of Stan Kenton (1967), Clare Fischer (1968), Louie Bellson
(1969-72), Lalo Schifrin(1979), Bob Florence (1979), Les Brown (1989),
Bill Holman (1990), Vinny Golia(1991), Johnny Mandel, Chris Walden and
Clay Jenkins among many others.Richmond also arranged professionally for
many years for Schifrin, Buddy Rich,and Ernie Watts, among others.

Richmond, composer/arranger/saxophonist, formed his 24-piece Concert Jazz
Orchestra to provide a workshop for major concert works that include
elements of both large ensemble jazz with free-swinging improvisation and
symphonic colors and textures. This is a large jazz(orchestra) ensemble
with expanded instrumentation contributing to the symphonic nature of the
group…by definition, an authentic large jazz ensemble.  The expanded
instrumentation that contributes to the symphonic nature of the orchestra
includes 5 woodwinds playing saxophones, flutes, clarinets and double reeds
(oboe, English horn and bassoon); 4 trumpets; 2 French horns; 3 tenor
trombones, bass trombone and tuba; and a rhythm section of guitar, piano,
bass, drums, mallet percussion and Latin percussion.

Stan Kenton maintained his orchestra by inventing new directions in music. 
While keeping an active road band, he also founded the Los Angeles
Neophonic Orchestra in 1964. Led by Stan,the Neophonic Orchestra consisted
of the top jazz and studio players and its mission was to perform new and
innovative works. The Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra shares this
mission. Kenton was not only a monumental icon in jazz and modern music,
but also in jazz education. This tribute continues his message by
presenting works that the orchestra thought he would have encouraged,
enjoyed and endorsed.
