Then along comes Bandzilla Rises!!! by Richard Niles. Full disclosure: I’ve known Richard for over 40 years. He and I were both students at Berklee College of Music in Boston during those heady days that saw the beginnings of Weather Report, The Pat Metheny Group, Brecker Brothers, and the Keith Jarrett solo performances. Dr RICHARD NILES has been described by Pat Metheny as "a great orchestrator and musician and a pleasure to work with. and by Sir Paul McCartney as one of the best composer/arrangers around and an exciting musical force. Richard was on the scene in London, but moved to California in 2012. He has made a new album, "BANDZILLA RISES!!!" with guest artists inclusing Leo Sayer, Randy Brecker and Nigel Hitchcock. The album is released today. Interview by Sebastian Scotney. Bandzilla rises – now!!! November 18, 2016.

A conglomerate of studio musos bent on having fun, this band – led by Richard Niles whose talents elicited praise from Paul McCartney and Pat Metheny: a sign of the composer’s stylistic reach – finally deliver their long-playing blow. Structured like a theatrical performance, the album may seem to channel the P-Funk kind of reckless madness, yet there’s a method to it that sprawls from the repetitive embrace of Live As One across the entire record – brass-blaring and bristling with humor

Composer, arranger, guitarist and producer, Richard Niles' "Bandzilla Rises" CD according to drummer, Danny Gottlieb, "is a masterpiece of contemporary music that the music world needs now more than ever".
