His career took off when he took up the drums, though, through the formation of what was to be a twenty-one year association with Charles Mingus. That association continued after Mingus' death when Richmond became the first musical director of the group Mingus Dynasty in 1980. Richmond also led his own quintet, with which he toured and recorded a number of albums. Read more on Last.fm.
