Rich Crandall

Rich grew up in Chicago under the influence of his musically-gifted father’s love of traditional and big band jazz. Rich started on trumpet as a kid, but piano really caught him during his college years at Lawrence University. He free-lanced through jazz scenes, leading his own groups in Chicago, Michigan, and San Francisco before landing in Honolulu where he's lived for many years. Cherished memories include making music with Freddie Hubbard, Ernestine Anderson, Sadao Watanabe, Trummy Young, and Henry Mancini, but he’s been mostly a working local musician in Honolulu. Rich started composing tunes in Michigan in his early years and now claims over fifty original works, many recorded on albums "Solo Travel", "Soothsayer", "‘Til Further Notice", and "Last Takes with Rory".
