Urban Jazz Saxophonist Richard Elliot Talks About His “Metro Blue” CD

Los Angeles-based saxophonist and composer Richard Elliot is widely considered one of the architects of urban contemporary jazz. After indulging his lifelong love of funk and R&B as a studio ace and spending five years as a member of Tower of Power, Elliot and his fat, reedy tone began braiding soul, funk, and hip-hop grooves with smooth jazz on his albums including 1986’s Trolltown.

He joined Joe Kelley for an engaging interview in support of the release of “Metro Blue” in 2005.
