The Art of Improvisation
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Hear an acknowledged master of all styles of improvisation delve into as many variations as he can pack into a solo concert. Richard's repertoire ranges from the Great American Songbook to the great jazz pianists, the counterpoint of JS Bach to the traditional songs of Burns. From his 2010 Herald Angel award-winning show, The History of Jazz Piano, Richard has expanded his take on improvisation to include solos on any theme from any composer suggested by the audience. 'Richard Michael presented one of the best jazz classes I have ever seen' (Peter Erskine of Weather Report).
