Eliot Richards is a jazz saxophonist based in Leeds, UK. He can be found playing all over the country and, indeed the world, having played across Europe, Asia and America. Having studied jazz performance at Leeds College of Music and subsequently in the USA with the great Charles Owens, Eliot is a force on the UK jazz scene.
Specialising in stirring up the aura of the great saxophonists, Eliot is able to effortlessly harness the intricacies of Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins and Sonny Rollins whilst still retaining his unique identity behind his tenor saxophone.
He has played with such exciting jazz projects as Kate Peters Septet and Big Band, Tom Sharp’s Jazz Orchestra, Play or Die Big Band, Tobie Carpenter Organ Trio and Jeff Hewer Quartet. He leads “Meantime Trio” which takes its influence from the great swinging trios of the 50/60s and can be regularly found playing in the house band of Nottingham's award winning jazz club Peggy's Skylight.

"Eliot is one of the most lyrical, tasteful horn players I have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. His passion for the music comes across through both his playing and his expert compering, including the audience in every number with anecdotes. The full package." - Andrew Wood
