Torrent description

Kamuca, Richie [Richard]
(b Philadelphia, 23 July 1930; d Los Angeles, 22 July 1977). American tenor saxophonist. While in his teens he worked around Philadelphia and made the acquaintance of Roy Eldridge. From 1952 to July 1953 he performed and recorded with Stan Kenton, who gave him solos on such tracks as Fascinatin’ Rhythm (1953); he was a principal soloist with Woody Herman from 1954 to 1956. On the West Coast he performed and recorded with Cy Touff (1955), Chet Baker (1956), Art Pepper (1956, 1959), Maynard Ferguson (late 1956 – early 1957), Howard Rumsey’s Lighthouse All Stars (1957–8), Shorty Rogers (intermittently 1957–9), and Shelly Manne (1959–61), with whom he may be seen in two television performances preserved on video. After moving to New York Kamuca worked with Gerry Mulligan, Gary McFarland, Eldridge (1965–71), and as a third tenor in Al Cohn and Zoot Sims’s group, making it a sextet; the Eldridge and Cohn–Sims–Kamuca groups also worked as accompanists to Jimmy Rushing. During this period he was a member of the orchestra for Merv Griffin’s television series, with which he moved in 1972 to Los Angeles. He recorded in 1974 and 1976 with Bill Berry’s L.A. Big Band. Kamuca’s early style was indebted to that of Lester Young; his best recordings, which he made in the 1970s for Concord, display greater individuality and a growing fondness for ballads.
