Master class trumpeter virtuoso Rex Richardson is one of a rare breed of jazz musicians who can successfully straddle the worlds of classical and jazz without sounding like he’s a mere overnight guest when performing in either genre. His focused, fiery delivery and high wire act of technical prowess is uncompromised whether soloing for orchestras in Slovenia and Manchester or fronting a jazz combo in a club in Richmond, Virginia where he resides as resident professor of trumpet, jazz improvisation and chamber music at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The past month provided a double treat, because never before has Richardson released two jazz recordings in the span of just a few months, let alone a year. With Bugles Over Zagreb: The Music of Doug Richards and Blue Shift, Richardson consolidates the musical relationships that he has nurtured for many years and channels them into two distinct and powerful jazz statements.
