The Jazz Angle

In mid-2015 we produced an album of some of our favorite jazz standards – all written between 1928 and 1993.

Luke Clebsch was our bass player at that time, and we recorded guest appearances by our dear friends

Slyde Hyde, Andrea Lindborg and Joey Bradley.

Richard played producer, and we recorded and mixed

the project with Charles Brotman at Lava Tracks Studios

in Waimea during April, May and June of 2015.

The CDs is available now on iTunes or

via download (or CD) from CD BABY at

and we'll keep you informed of future developments.


Jesse, Richard and Brian were part of another band called the Slippersons,

and they released a new album of jazz originals in 2016, which was nominated

for a 2017 Na Hoku Hanohano Award in Hawaii, for Jazz Album of the Year!

We had the opportunity to create the theme music for an excellent Public Radio Program

called Truth, Politics & Power,

with Neal Conan, previously host of

"Talk of the Nation" (among other things)

on NPR. Check it out at


On another front, we are plotting to record a new Red Water Trio album in fall of 2018, so thanks for encouraging us. Thanks for supporting independent and live music.

Below is our first album,

from three years ago already.

We have been recording our Friday night performances very simply, and if you're interested you can hear them with no adjustments. Please check them out at https://soundcloud.com/ricardoandfriends
