JACOB H. CARRUTHERS FOR INNER CITY STUDIES
If there were a Lexicon of Chicago Working Musicians, Ric Jazs photo would be included right along side the entry: Working Musician. Born in the Windy City, he truly is a prime example of the best of Chicago musicians; possessing the talent and mastery over his instrument, the guitar as well as audience-pleasing performing capabilities expected of a seasoned professional musician.
Ric has played with Soul, R&B, Jazz and Blues bands in Chicago, nationally and internationally, serving as rhythm section leader for the The Dells legendary band from Harvey, Illinos. In June 2004 Ric took on the duties of rhythm guitar player in the Buddy Guy Band, where he is gaining a quiet but loyal following and greater national exposure on tour with Mr. Guy.
Ric also operates a small independent recording studio, recording and producing local artists in addition to his own projects.To not include Ric Jaz in your listing would be a terrible omission he serves as good will ambassador for the Chicago Music scene while away from his home city and as a local attraction when he is in town playing with Buddy Guy, Linsey Alexander, Joe Bar and Jimmy Tillman.
