Chris Ingham - Hoagy! The Life and music of Hoagy Carmichael

Jazz Cabaret at Piano Smithfield14, Long Lane, Barbican, London EC1A 9PN – Concert 4

 just up the road from Smithfield Market and around the corner from Barbican Tube

Chris Ingham, one of the UK’s most recognised jazz pianists and band leader arrives at Piano Smithfield with his one man show Hoagy! Chris has enjoyed considerable success entertaining audiences around the country. Tonight will be a joyful, edifying and heartfelt salute to the wry, down-home brilliance of songwriter Hoagy Carmichael, tracing his journey from Indiana, via New York and to films in Hollywood. 

The evening includes well-loved hits, including “Rockin’ Chair”, “Lazybones”, “My Resistance Is Low”, “Skylark”, “Stardust”, “The Nearness Of You” and arguably his longest standing gem “Georgia On My Mind”,  alongside obscure nuggets and delightful curiosities from his rich and varied songbook.

Chris has already built a popular jazz cabaret reputation with concerts at major London venues featuring the life, times and music of several musical greats including Rodgers & Hart, Dudley Moore and Jimmy Van Heusen, plus his Jazz At The Movies series of swinging music from the silver screen.

Here’s a taste of what’s in store with this excerpt from Chris Ingham's recent livestream exploring the music of Jimmy Van Heusen.

 

"Hoagy! Captures the spirit of a 20th-century giant...a delightful package" OBSERVER      

Ingham has a warm and generous way with music..his style is based on rhythmic presence and dynamic propulsion"  — DOWNBEAT

"One of Britain's best singer-pianists"  — LONDON EVENING STANDARD

“Over and above his impish arpeggios, droll introductions and left-handed singing the thing that fascinates me about Mr. Ingham is his erudition" – JAZZ JOURNAL
