Richie Barshay

As a young New York City based musician Richie Barshay holds down the drum chair for an incredibly diverse roster of bands. Barshay has played with Herbie Hancocks Quartet since 2003 (beginning with the Gershwins World project), is a member of the U.S. State Department sponsored Afro-Caribbean group, Insight, works regularly with Argentine vocalist Sofia Koutsovitis, and has recently added tradition exploding ensemble, The Klezmatics to Straight-ahead, Afro Cuban, pop and Klezmer would be enough for most any ambitious musician, but Barshay is anything but typical. And like the great drummers who have influenced him Tony Williams, Roy Haynes, Jack DeJohnette Barshay brings something entirely new, fresh and inspiring to bear in what can loosely be called a jazz recording.
