I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my trio, my duo (called Skirt & Suit with Joshua Payne) and also with whoever asks me to join them, whenever they ask!
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.
I know I preach a lot of information about improvisation. I'm not sure that I follow it all in this performance of Harold Arlen's "Let's Fall In Love," but sometimes, I don't know...you just gotta go for it. Improvising in harmony with myself is something I work on quite a bit, but I rarely show it. I hope that will change as I practice more.

Simon Fransman (subscribe to him here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIglhQNl15_hi0M0FD2BFCQ ) Released this amazing piece of work today, and I love it. Katy Perry's "Roar" but it's John Coltrane's "Giant Steps." I had to take a solo over it.
“Phil Mattson is the greatest vocal jazz arranger on the planet.” – Richie Cole
In the last while, before Phil's passing, he had a dream to form a vocal group. He invited myself, Tama Shutts, Angela Parrish, Christine Guter and Gerhard Guter (and later, Michele Weir) to be his singers, and we called ourselves "5 PM." Phil was commissioned to arrange "Speak To Me Of Love" by Jed Scott, but let us try it out at this rehearsal, which we recorded (thanks to Mark Mattson). It was shot in April of 2018.
