Rich Hinrichsen is a singer and jazz musician with a special love of Latin music, especially tango. Tango Cowboys combines Rich’s vocal tangos with guitarist Tom Bourne’s compositions. Tango Cowboys specialize in vocal tangos from Argentina written in the 30s and 40s.
Rich was inspired to take up music by his Father Bill who sang songs from musicals and played guitar, performing songs like “Try To Remember” from The Fantasticks. He took up the violin at age 8, switched to the double bass at 11, and began studying the piano at 13. At 15 he played bass for a college vocal jazz group, which included his brother Mike (singing bass), and toured California. In college, Rich (piano, bass) studied with jazz guitarist Al Galante, and led a jazz quintet (pictured below on the far right). In the late 1980s, while in Clemson S.C., he played bass with “Jazz Essence,” a trio that included Dick Underwood on piano, and played bebop in the tradition of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown, and Bud Powell.
