Andy Rumble

Andy Rumble has had a successful career in British television and theatre for a little over 20 years. He was chosen by Barry Manilow to score his musical Copacabana in London's West End. There followed more west end musicals and more successes including two long running television series.

“My Kind Of Music” with Micheal Barrymore involved Andy in every aspect of music from composing to arranging and playing on the sessions.

He has also composed for the BBC Concert Orchestra and appeared with them on Radio 2 with his “Nocturne For Jenia”. This will be included in a later album.

Influences: Dave Grusin, Oscar Peterson, Rachmaninov, Vaughn Williams.

Andy believes that the line between Jazz and Classical music is very thin line indeed and maybe it doesn't exist at all! This will be Andy's exploration in albums to come in the future. His first album, “Bringing Back The Melody” is a first step in a direction that trys to present “jazz” in a melodic and meaningful way that will appeal to an audience well beyong the usual jazz audience. Only you, the audience, can judge whether this has been successful.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
