Rich Halley



The new Rich Halley 4 CD “Creating Structure” is now available on Pine Eagle Records. This is the first Rich Halley 4 recording devoted exclusively to free improvisations. It features sixteen musical statements that showcase the group’s original approach to improvising, combining freedom, feeling and traditional elements into a seamless whole.


"Creating Structure... demonstrates the almost telepathic bond between these musicians, five albums (and counting) into their collective journey."
-Phil Freeman, The New York City Jazz Record


"Creating Structure is yet another powerful and compelling statement by the Rich Halley 4."
-Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
