Grant Richards & Numinous is a multi-genre piano trio featuring Zwelakhe-Duma Bell le Pere on bass and Charles Burchell on drums. Led by Portland-based pianist Grant Richards, their debut album combines straight ahead jazz with instrumental hip hop and world grooves for a diverse and head-bobbing listening experience. Oregon Jazz Scene calls Numinous “a genre-bending odyssey that feels both wide ranging and miraculously unified.” Their music is rooted in the traditions of jazz but points to the future with deep-seated grooves and infectious melodies that appeal both to the average listener and the seasoned jazz lover.
Joined by award-winning Seattle vocalist Isabella Du Graf for this special live-recorded event at Resonance, the group will present an exciting mix of original material and familiar tunes to be released on their next album. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
