Rich Halley

The new Rich Halley 4 CD “Eleven” is now available on Pine Eagle Records. "Eleven" features eleven new compositions that showcase the group’s original approach to improvising, combining freedom, feeling and traditional elements into a seamless whole.

"A set filled with compositional variety and strong playing."
-Mark Sullivan, All About Jazz

"The quartet plays with an infectious, earthy swagger, as if they have been at it for a long time. Each time I listen to this disc I discover another layer or gem buried beneath the surface."
-Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

"Letting mental telepathy guide the players on their way, all are in touch and in tune with each other as the muscular vibe flows freely making you think this is springing from New York as opposed to Oregon. This is the stuff that'll get your blood flowing."
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record
