Cool Blue
Cool Blue Jazz BandAfter spending 35 years in Law Enforcement, Richie returned to his true passion, the Trumpet. He started his studies in New York at the ripe old age of 8. By the time 12 came around, he was already performing as a pro. While in New York, he studied with Trumpet Master Charles Colin. In 1963, he arrived in Los Angeles and studied with Irving Bush, John Clyman, and Tommy Stevens.

During his college days, he recorded with the likes of Della Reese, Ike, and Tina Turner, The Impressions, The Seven Wonders, The Emotions, and many others. After receiving his bachelor’s degree and attending Graduate School, he accepted a position in Law Enforcement. During his 35-year tenure, he sadly abandoned his music. Upon his retirement, he dusted off his horn and started on the long road back.
