Rick playing Chick Corea's "Got A Match?"
Rick Todd - Got A Match.mp3


From Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl, from the Jazz Bakery to Birdland, internationally renowned concert, jazz, and recording artist Richard Todd has earned acclaim as one of the finest horn soloists today. Gold medal winner of the 1980 Concours Internationale Toulon, he is a Pro Musicis International Foundation Award winner and is continually expanding the boundaries of the horn world. He has performed under the batons of such luminaries as Bernstein, Guilini, Marriner, Abravanel, Ozawa, Previn, Rilling and Schuller. Renowned for his performances that “are simply startling in their dexterity” with “a heart-clutching sound”; he is also deeply committed to arts education and making the arts more accessible to all listeners.

As a classical artist Todd’s rigorous schedule includes recitals and solo engagements across North America, his position as principal horn with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, work in the film industry where he has been a recording artist on over 1,000 motion picture soundtracks, and on recording projects with performers such as Streisand, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Manhattan Transfer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Natalie Cole and Dave Grusin. As a jazz artist he has appeared in concerts and recordings with such artists as Clark Terry, Ray Brown, Woody Herman, Lalo Shifrin, McCoy Tyner and Andre Previn. Richard Todd breaks down the barriers of music, being equally at home in all areas. He has performed as guest soloist with orchestras in the United States and abroad, including the Saarbrucken Radio Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Saint John’s Smith Square London, and the New Orleans, Santa Barbara, Lima, Northeast Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Akron, Long Beach, San Luis Obispo, Pasadena and Santa Rosa Symphonies. Festival appearances include the Oregon Bach, Mostly Mozart, Tanglewood, Casals, La Jolla, Tucson, Chatauqua, Sedona, Sandpoint, Music Academy of the West, Grand Teton, Green Festival and the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival.
