Listeners have come to love Richie Goods as an artist who’s gathered sound and sense from an expansive lineage, and created a heavy vibration all his own. A master of the feel-it-deep feel on both upright and electric bass, the artist, composer and producer has been a sound architect for many enduring figures, as well as a boundary-dissolving leader. Over the years, he’s collaborated with legendary voices including Louis Hayes, Milt Jackson, Common, Whitney Houston, Brian McKnight, and his friend and mentor, the late Mulgrew Miller. My Left Hand, Richie’s third release as a leader, interprets 10 compositions from Mulgrew’s canon in celebration of his contributions and legacy. Richie’s quartet will feature Shedrick Mitchell, piano; John Roberts, drums, and David Rosenthal, guitar. SJ
