Chris Ingham Quartet: The Jazz of Dudley Moore

4th March 2018


The Jazz of Dudley Moore
Classical organist, violinist, singer, beloved and endearing comic performer, a star of stage and TV in the 60s and a Hollywood movie star from the 70s . . .

Dudley Moore was not only blessed with all these varied talents and attributes, but he was also one of the UK’s most dazzling, swinging jazz pianists, and a composer of wit and depth - something that has sadly been overlooked for far too long. This has now been redressed, thanks to long-time DM fan, pianist Chris Ingham.

Following the release of their highly praised 2017 CD, ‘Dudley’, the Chris Ingham Quartet revisit the Dagenham-born musician’s fabulous 1960s Decca jazz trio albums, the groundbreaking satirical revue Beyond The Fringe, the TV show Not Only But Also and the brilliant movie soundtracks for Bedazzled and 30 Is A Dangerous Age, Cynthia, in an evening packed with music and anecdote.

Chris Ingham (Piano), Paul Higgs (Trumpet), Geoff Gascoyne (Double Bass), George Double (Drums).
