Rodney Richardson is a jazz guitarist and educator from the Washington, DC area who recently relocated to the great jazz city of Chicago, Illinois. Rodney has played in a number of ensembles including DC’s only resident big band the 17-piece Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra, and the afro-beat, vintage inspired Funk Ark, as well as leading his own group The Rodney Richardson Trio. And Rodney has recently secured the guitar spot in the Chicago-based Great Postmodern Nightmare big band.
Seeing a jazz gig in the District that doesn't feature Joe Herrera is almost a challenge. The ubiquitous trumpeter is at the center of the city's burgeoning jazz scene and plays an important role as both bandleader and sideman, co-directing the fine Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra with saxophonist Brad Linde, backing master griot Cheick Hamala Diabate or jamming with talented young saxophonist Elijah Balbed.
