He is perhaps best known as the founder and leader of the modern jazz group Spirit Level, who released seven albums, appeared at clubs and festivals About Tim Richards all over Europe between 1979 and 1999, and were nominated Best Small Group in the 1995 British Jazz Awards.

Tim is very active in education, teaching jazz piano, blues piano and improvisation at London’s Morley and Goldsmiths Colleges since 1991. He is a contributing tutor on the European Piano Teachers Association’s Piano Pedagogy course, and course director of the annual Jazz Piano Week held at Premises Studios in Hackney.
