Jeff Richman Like That (August 17 release/Nefer Records) is guitarist Jeff Richman's 15th solo release and delivers 10 hard-hitting, playful compositions with catchy melodies and a refreshingly modern sound. Richman continues to shine in his ability to write music with creative intricacy and sophistication, articulating his individual point of view. This time around, his guitar tone is deeper, more resonant, robust, and alive. Richman's style of playing complex changes fluidly over these infectious grooves will satisfy over many listenings.

Like a musical alchemist, Richman's purposeful selection of accompanying musicians creates a unique magic and delivers pleasing surprises along the way. A Vinnie Colaiuta solo highlights the expansive, wild adventure on “In Spirited" and Will Kennedy puts his signature on title track “Like That" with a funky backbeat. Larry Goldings' solo on “Tsuyako" adds to its romantic flair, Mitchel Forman lays an all-out solo on “Rock Tall," and Deron Johnson's hypnotic acoustic piano on “Endless Inbetween" gives it depth and dimension. Alex Acua's vibrant percussion adds just the right amount of musical spice.

“Richman is an articulate, facile player with a genre-crossing style" --The Los Angeles Times

“His cool intervallic licks sound great..." --ModernGuitars.com

“A mainstay on the Los Angeles fusion landscape..."--Vintage Guitar

“What has always distinguished Jeff Richman among his peers is his harmonic path through his runs, shred lightly, if you will, with a sophisticated jazz approach finding angular, yet very lyrical pathways through the simplest or most complex changes." --All About Jazz
