Tim has been a regular in Nottingham as a judge for the Nottingham International Jazz Piano Competition, but it's been a while since he's performed at the Bonington. The Hextet features a mix of youth (Ralph Wyld, Dominic Howles and Peter Ibbetson) and experience (Dick Pearce and Ed Jones), playing blues-tinged hard-bop which would easily feel at home on the Blue Note label of the 1950s. â€œPianist Tim Richards is one of the cornerstones of British jazz. Over more than three decades his work has been amazingly consistent - attractively melodic, harmonically rich and refreshingly unpompous. Hextet maintains the standardâ€¦ A joy from beginning to end.â€ - Dave Gelly, The Observer TheHextet comprise: Tim Richards (piano), Dick Pearce (trumpet), Ed Jones (saxophone), Ralph Wyld (vibes), Dominic Howles (bass) and Peter Ibbetson (drums) Phioto: Bob Meyrick
