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.
