CONNECTED is a new live and album project of bassist Richie Goods (Alicia Keys, Common, Sting) and vibraphonist Chien Chien that embodies the profound musical connection between them.

Richie Goods and Chien Chien met in 2019 during a European tour. Shortly after, Richie produced Chien Chien's debut album, "The Path." 

The youngest person ever inducted into the Pittsburgh Jazz Hall of Fame, bassist Richie Goods got an early start playing in church and clubs while still attending Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts High School. After graduating from the prestigious jazz program at Berklee College of Music, Richie moved to New York City, where he studied under jazz legends Ron Carter and Ray Brown. 

His lengthy discography includes Grammy award-winning and platinum albums of Alicia Keys and Common, Manhattan Transfer and Walter Beasley to Brian McKnight, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera. Richie most recently toured with Grammy winning trumpeter, Chris Botti and Sting. 

Chien Chien Lu  has recently been included in the list of 10 Emerging Jazz Artists 2023 by Grammy (Recording Academy). Her collaborative album with bassist Richie Goods “connected“ just received 34th Golden Melody Awards “Best Instrumental Album“. Her fierce authenticity and jazz mastery shine bright on her September 2020 debut solo project, The Path, which spent 20 weeks on the Jazz Week Charts Top 20, earned Best Jazz Songs in Golden Indie Music Awards and three Golden Melody Awards nominations, four Golden Indie Music Awards nominations and led to Lu’s being named the “vibraphone rising star” in Downbeat Magazine.

She just released her sophomore solo project “Built in System live from New York” and it has been selected by The Times of London as one of the best jazz and world album of 2023.
