Mike Richmond (b. Feb. 26, 1948, Philadelphia) is an American jazz bassist.

Richmond played guitar as a youth but picked up bass in 7th grade. He attended Temple University (1965-1970) studying with Edward Arian from the Philadelphia Orchestra. After lessons with Jimmy Garrison in the early 1970's he began performing with Chico Hamilton and Arnie Lawrence, also working with Stan Getz, Jack DeJohnette, Horace Silver, Joe Henderson, Lee Konitz, Hubert Laws, Franco Ambrosetti, Dannie Richmond, Gil Evans, Art Farmer, Woody Herman, and George Gruntz. Starting in 1980 Richmond devoted time to learning the sitar, traveling to India and perfrorming live with Ravi Shankar. He led Mingus Dynasty (replacing Mingus himself) from 1980 to 1985, and began teaching at New York University in 1998 (Teacher Of The Year 1991 & 1994), where he is still on faculty. Richmond won a Grammy Award performing on the Warner Bros. recording "Miles & Quincy Live At Montreux" (Miles Davis & Quincy Jones). His book "Modern Walking Bass Technique" (published by Ped Xing Music) is used internationally.
