Randy Ingram Randy Ingram

The Road Ahead is the first recorded offering from pianist Randy Ingram,  which was recently released to rave reviews on Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records.  Ingram is an “incredible pianist”  (composer George Russell), composer and improviser with boundless talent, and the wisdom to use it to the listener’s benefit.  Many players have chops to spare; Ingram’s are laced with an expressive touch and a keen imagination.

Originally from Laguna Beach, CA, and a recipient of the 2007 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer's award, Ingram has received scholarships to the University of Southern California (where he apprenticed with Tierney Sutton, Joe LaBarbera and the great Billy Higgins), and the New England Conservatory, where he studied with his two mentors, Fred Hersch and Danilo Perez, and received his Masters.  Ingram moved to Brooklyn in the Fall of 2003 and has since become a much in demand sideman and a creative force on the scene, working with Ben Monder, Joel Frahm, Joe Locke, Mike Moreno, Kendrick Scott and many others. He serves as the arranger and musical director for PS Classics recording artist Jack Donahue, and co-produced Jack's most recent CD, “A Small Blue Thing”, and has recently toured with Blue Note recording artist Kristina Train. He has recently performed at venues such as Birdland, the Jazz Standard, Smalls, Regattabar, and on Canadian National TV.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
