This is FRESH AIR. Trumpet player Steph Richards was born in Alberta, studied music in the U.S. and Canada and moved to New York in 2008. There, she co-founded the Asphalt Orchestra. She’s also recorded with composers Henry Threadgill, Anthony Braxton and John Zorn. In 2014, she began teaching at UC San Diego. Last year, Steph Richards released a solo trumpet album. Now, she’s back with a quartet. Jazz critic Kevin Whitehead says Richards is one to watch.
