As you listen to a man distill through his instrument years of wonder and experience to their essence, you will realize that the man himself has become an extension of his instrument. Saxophonist/composer/educator Richard Elliot has reached that rare state of being through decades of continued discipline and exploration. So what you hear in Richard’s latest offering titled Lip Service (Heads Up, 2014) is the sound and story of one of soul jazz’s architects; a deep musical thinker, educator - an instrument of life itself!

Past and present, his musicality sets him apart from many artists but Richard always puts them at ease when he’s sharing a recording session or on stage with any of them. Lip Service, his 17th solo belongs to the present stage of his career and is a project that not only celebrates his skill and artistry as a saxophonist, but spotlights his compositional skills on seven brand new songs. He has also included three other songs that represent his romantic nature including The Manhattans’ “Shining Star,” Brian McKnight’s “Anytime,” and Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man.” Additionally he has invited several dynamic collaborators in the development of Richard’s musical life – Paul Brown and Greg Adams – to arrange a few songs as well as perform. How to be casually virtuoso is his forte!!

The recording kicks off with the amorousness of “Desire,” which set the tones for the remainder of the program. Inevitably, Elliot BRINGS IT and shines through with his awesome command of nuance, dynamic contrasts and rhythmic power. “Lip Service,” is just as passionate and as you listen to the lovely lines flowing from his saxophones and the sexy backbeat of his rhythm section, you instantly know that this is another chart-topper for the revered merchant of soul jazz. Richard Elliot’s flexibility and imagination are splendid in color and on a whole, has a hypnotic effect on his listener during another of his original compositions called “Givin’ It Up.” Overall, Richard Elliot has some outstanding accompanists and arrangements that suit Lip Service just fine.
