You don’t see jazz artist and VCU music professor Rex Richardson around town much because he’s in demand worldwide, with 46 countries on his gig roster. But he’ll be onstage backed by a quintet of powerhouse players for two performances at 8 and 9:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 9, at Carytown’s cabaret Révéler. In 2011, when Richardson received Richmond magazine’s Theresa Pollak Prize for Excellence in the Arts, the selectors said, “Richardson stands at the vanguard of jazz, classical and contemporary American music. … He is an extraordinary musician.” So say we all. Tickets start at $15.
