In the words of mentor Fred Hersch, Randy Ingram is among the vanguard of NYC jazz pianists." A recipient of the 2007 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer's Award, Ingram is a much in demand sideman and a creative force in the NYC jazz community, appearing with his trio at clubs such as Smalls and the 55 Bar. His excellent debut" (JazzTimes), The Road Ahead, was released in the fall of 2009 on Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records to rave reviews. Ingram has performed with Billy Higgins, Tierney Sutton, Joe LaBarbera, Ben Monder, Joe Locke, Kendrick Scott, and many other leading musicians. Recent performance highlights include a tour of Spain and Portugal with his trio, a tour supporting Blue Note recording artist Kristina Train, and an appearance on CNN.com with Decca/Universal recording artist and jazz singing prodigy Nikky Yanofsky.
This performance will reunite Ingram with one of his childhood friends, drummer Nate Wood, who is an integral part of the grammy-nominated group Kneebody.
Enlightenment comes in part through learning how to achieve greater results through more economical means. In his debut as a leader, Randy Ingram makes it clear that he has absorbed this lesson into his creative DNA...when Ingram does kick it up...the impact is at least as strong as that made by his flashier peers, and deeper too" Robert L Doerschuk, Downbeat
