The alto sax savant is busier than ever and set to return to South Florida with an 8-piece Alto Madness Orchestra!  "I had my hand in the creation of this most important organization," Cole boasts with pride. "I am honored to have been asked to perform on this landmark day!"  

Richie’s career began in 1969 playing with the Buddy Rich Big Band followed by Lionel Hampton’s and Doc Severinsen’s Big Bands. He toured worldwide with his own quintet popularizing bebop and his own “Alto Madness” style. He’s performed and recorded with many greats: Eddie Jefferson, Manhattan Transfer, Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Stitt, Art Pepper, Nancy Wilson... Notably, Cole has performed at the Village Vanguard and Carnegie Hall as well as gave a command performance for the Queen of England. Richie Cole has recorded over 50 albums and CDs. We should be in very good hands with Richie’s Alto Madness!
