ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rich Halley is a tenor saxophonist and composer based in Portland, Oregon. He is known for his imaginative compositions and his fiery playing. Rich has released 22 critically acclaimed recordings as a leader and has recorded over one hundred original compositions. His most recent album, “Terra Incognita”, features innovative pianist Matthew Shipp, standout bassist Michael Bisio and sterling drummer Newman Taylor Baker. Halley’s recent release, “The Literature”, was on several lists of the best jazz albums of 2018. All About Jazz describes his music as:“Uncluttered, bold and powerful” and Something Else! calls him “One of the best pure improvisers on his horn at the present time.” DownBeat said: "Oregon-based saxophonist Rich Halley has been turning out smart, brawny music for a couple of decades.”

Rich currently leads the Rich Halley 4, a group which has released six albums of original music, and the Rich Halley 3, a tenor/bass/drums trio. Rich was also the leader of The Lizard Brothers, a four horn sextet, and The Outside Music Ensemble, a horns and percussion group dedicated to unamplified outdoor performances. He has performed with Matthew Shipp, Tony Malaby, Julius Hemphill, Vinny Golia, Bobby Bradford, Nels Cline, Obo Addy, Andrew Hill and Oliver Lake. For the last 26 years he has been the artistic director of the Penofin Jazz Festival, a small festival in Northern California that has presented many of the leading figures in creative jazz. Rich was a founder of Oregon’s Creative Music Guild. He was educated as a field biologist, and his lifelong interest in nature has informed his music and led him on many trips into wilderness regions around the world.
