Update Roger Ingram + Follow

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: November 13, 1957

Roger Ingram, musician, educator and author, is one of the most sought after and prolific jazz lead trumpet players of our time, with more than thirty-eight years of professional experience to his credit. Well known for his dynamic sound and solid upper register, as well as his hard driving sense of swing, Roger's musical legacy is embodied by his respect and regard for artistic integrity. Ingram's definitive voice and performance mastery undoubtedly place him among the lineage of great lead trumpeters in the history of jazz music.

Roger began playing the trumpet in 1965 at the age of eight. He was fortunate to grow up in Los Angeles, and become associated with some of the finest Hollywood trumpet players of the time. Many of these introductions came through his association with the band director at Eagle Rock High School. In addition to being an inspiring high school band director, John Rinaldo was also a gifted and working trumpet player on the LA scene. Through Mr. Rinaldo, Roger was able to meet and study with Laroon Holt and Bobby Shew. Other teachers he studied with include Bud Brisbois, Mannie Klein, Roy Stevens, Bobby Findley, Carmine Caruso, Reynold Schilke, James Stamp, Uan Rasey, Mel Broils, and Dan Jacobs.
