Richie Goods is described as “a master musician whose tenure with many of music’s greatest names clearly has worn off on him...” He’s one of the most versatile and accomplished bass players on the scene today. Richie, a Berklee College of Music graduate, studied with such luminaries as Ron Carter and Ray Brown. He came to prominence while touring and recording with the late Mulgrew Miller and credits him for much of his success. Richie went on to make a name for himself by recording and touring with a variety of jazz and pop artists including Sting, The Headhunters, Louis Hayes and the Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band, Lenny White, Antonio Hart, Milt Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Alicia Keys. Most recently Richie toured with popular jazz trumpeter, Chris Botti for over 5 years. Known for his versatility and ability to “lay down the groove”, Richie’s funk and gospel influences are infused throughout his music. He tours the US and internationally extensively, including notable performances at the Monterrey, Montreal, Mendocino, Detroit and Jakarta Java Jazz Festivals as well as the Punta del Este International Jazz Festival. His lengthy discography also includes Grammy award-winning and platinum albums of Alicia Keys and Common. Richie received critical acclaim for his first recording with Nuclear Fusion – “Richie Goods & Nuclear Fusion Live at the Zinc Bar” (2009), which was followed by “THREE RIVERS” in 2015. His new band, “The Goods Project”, features a more acoustic sound, but just as funky.
