"I’ve been reviewing jazz for two decades and listening for more than four. During this time I’ve probably heard it in every incarnation: mainstream, third stream, and slipstream; hot and cool; free, Latin, world, and fused with everything from Chopin to hip-hop. But I’ve never encountered jazz with such strong spiritual intent. The closest was the urgent questing of saxophone legend John Coltrane -- not surprisingly, one of Richard’s major influences -- although Sky Jazz inspires a much sunnier and more serene kind of reflection." - Dr. Judith Schlesinger
