I got to know Richie Beirach’s music for the first time when I was 20 years old and bought the fantastic book by David Liebman called “A Chromatic Approach to Jazz Harmony and Melody”. The concepts in that book are still resonating with me on a daily basis, not only David being a great influence on my playing and thinking but also the various examples and references related to Richie Beirach.

Here some examples of his playing and harmonic approach:
