Richard Koch is a trumpet player known from big names like Nils Frahm, Jimi Tenor or the Beatsteaks. As the bandleader of Richard Koch Quartett, he blends his wide range of experience into a brand new sound: melting Jazz into Soul and Dance Music.
After the big success of his debut album WALD (german for ‘forest’), STADT (‘city’) brings the fresh sound of the woods into the cities: take the single IN THE SKY, which mixes Afrobeats with urban jazz styles.
