New Album Release: “Mr. Kool”
I am feeling very thankful and humble today. I’m thankful that Mr. Kool, the title track from my most recent full album has now surpassed 1,000,000 plays worldwide. I’m feeling humbled because so many people I will never meet have taken the time to listen to my music. They didn’t have to listen, but they did. I am so grateful!
When I began my musical journey many years ago, I wanted to write and record music that people would enjoy. I never thought about something like this happening, and that makes this event even better!
Thanks to the great musicians who helped record the song: Chris Otts (saxophone), Jack Jones (drums and percussion), and John Rathbone (bass and percussion). Thanks as well to Rodney Mills, at Rodney Mills Masterhouse. He mastered the recording and really brought it to life. Special thanks to my producer and long-time collaborator Michael Cornett. Michael also played percussion on Mr. Kool. This wouldn’t have happened without all of these talented guys!
Last, but not least, I want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all the music listeners who have made this happen!
GOD BLESS YOU, AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
I’m very excited to announce that my new album, “Mr. Kool,” has been released. It’s an all-instrumental album of jazzy music. Michael Cornett produced it. Suffice it to say that the album wouldn’t have turned out as well as it did without his help!
I played keyboards and guitar on “Mr. Kool.” Chris Otts added some incredible sax parts on five of the tunes. I had help from three really great drummers: Jack Jones, Moses Mooney, and Brandon Williams. John Rathbone and Michael Cornett played bass on various songs. Bill Craig added some nice percussion parts as well. I can honestly say that this album is the best work I have done thus far. I really believe that you are going to enjoy the music!

My new album, entitled “Breezy Day,” was released today! I think that it is the best work I have done yet. Many thanks to all those who made it possible, but especially to my producer, Michael Cornett, and to John Crawford, who designed the album art. This has truly been a team effort!
You can listen to “Breezy Day ” for free on Spotify. CDs and downloads are available at CD Baby. You can also download the album (or individual tracks) at Amazon. You’ll find links to Spotify, CD Baby, and Amazon on my website. You can also order CDs directly from me at P.O. Box 70, Cherry Log, GA 30522.
My goal is to write, record, and perform jazz-rock music that is melodic, accessible, and interesting. I hope that that you will enjoy “Breezy Day.” Quite frankly, I think that the music will put you in a good mood!
All the best!
I’m happy to let you know that my new album, “Breezy Day,” will be released very soon. All the music has been mixed, mastered, and uploaded to the company that makes the CDs. The album will be available at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, Google, and various other online sites. You’ll be able to listen to it on Spotify as well.
I owe a deep debt of gratitude to those who made this project happen. First, and foremost, many thanks to Michael Cornett. He engineered and produced the album, and he played GREAT bass guitar tracks on the album!
I am also grateful to the amazing drummers who came to the studio and played drums for us: Scott Jones, Jeff Rudolph, Brandon Williams, and Thomas Pinson. Every one of these guys is a MONSTER on drums! These guys are pros!
Thanks also go to Rodney Mills, of Rodney Mills Masterhouse, for bringing the music to life through his mastering expertise. Rodney has worked with Skynyrd, .38 Special, ARS, Gregg Allman, the Doobies, Journey, and too many others to list. I am honored to have had the privilege to work with him!
Last, but not least, my thanks go to John Crawford, who designed the album art and the poster that goes with the album. John is an awesome photographer and designer, and a great musician as well!
I really believe that you will like “Breezy Day.” It truly reflects the kind of music that I enjoy writing and playing these days. It’s jazzy, with a bit of rock influence. I’ll post an announcement when the album is available.
Here’s the album poster:
I was recently interviewed by a writer for No Depression, an internet music journal. We covered a lot of topics, including my latest album, Metamorphosis. The interview has now been published, and I hope that you find it interesting.

This is a quick note to let you know that my Metamorphosis album is now available for listening on Spotify. If you don’t already have a Spotify account, you can sign up online for free. No need for the premium service unless you want it. Just do a search for “Jim Richter Metamorphosis,” and you’ll find me. All my prior releases (Summer’s Gone, Endless War, Cosmic Dust, Tater Chip Man, and Macon) are also on Spotify.
P.S. Turns out there’s another Jim Richter on Spotify. He’s the guy who plays blues/rock/folk mandolin. He’s very good. However, I’m the Jim Richter who plays electric guitar and keyboards!
I’m very happy to report that my new album is out! It’s entitled Metamorphosis. I think that it’s the best work that I have released thus far. It’s all-instrumental, and I think that it will appeal to a wide range of people.
The album is available for downloads, and also on CDs. All of my releases, including Metamorphosis, are available at my artist page at CD Baby:
