The Richard Sherman Trio
Pianist Richard Sherman and Grammy Award winning vocalist Bili Redd have been playing music together for over seven years. In addition to local nightclubs in the South Bay, they have also performed in eight benefit concerts. The trio includes bassist Adam Cohen and drummer Jon Stuart.

He demands, with a precedent, every part of you that can love a song. ...continued
