Chris Ingham Quartet

Sold out at Ronnie Scott’s in 2014 and 2015, a festival hit in Canterbury, Edinburgh, Rye, Devizes, Caterham, Norwich, Woolpit and Bury St Edmunds and a Sunday Times Top 10 Jazz album of 2014, Chris Ingham’s Celebrating Hoagy is packed with the songs and stories of one of America’s most enduring and endearing songwriters.

Wry, wise, sentimental, down-home and sophisticated, Hoagy Carmichael’s songs are beloved for their warmth, wit and melodic beauty. This joyful, edifying and heartfelt salute to the Old Music Master features many engaging anecdotes and insights along with tracks from Chris’s acclaimed CD Hoagy including well-loved hits (Stardust, How Little We Know, Georgia On My Mind, Skylark, Ole Buttermilk Sky, Lazy Bones, et al) alongside obscure nuggets and delightful curiosities from Hoagy’s rich and varied songbook.

JASG promoter Jean Darke writes "Featuring Paul Higgs on trumpet. The  sell-out programme at Ronnie Scott's London jazz club brought rave five star reviews in the National Press, jazz magazines etc. "This lovely 5 star evening"- Sunday Times; "Hits the Sweet note every time" - BBC Music Magazine; "Superb tribute to America's best loved songwriter" - Evening Standard.  With 'Georgia' on (your) mind, you're in for a 'Stardust' of an evening."
