Randy Ingram is a thoughtful, versatile young pianist and improviser, with an expressive touch and a keen imagination. Together with Matt Clohesy (bass) and Jochen Rueckert (drums), he strives for an eclectic mix of composition, improvisation and interpretation. The trio has recently recorded their debut record, which also features John Ellis on tenor and soprano saxophones, and will be released later this year.
Originally from Laguna Beach, CA, Randy's musical journey has included graduate studies with Fred Hersch and Danilo Perez at the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA, and has led him to NYC, where he has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most promising young pianists in the city. Randy has recorded and performed with Billy Higgins, Ben Monder, Tierney Sutton, Joe LaBarbera, Joe Locke, Mike Moreno and Kendrick Scott. He has performed at many of the best jazz clubs in the country, including Birdland, the Jazz Standard, Regattabar and the Catalina Bar and Grill. He is a recipient of the 2007 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer's award.
