Despite their contrasting characters and lifestyles, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart were among the most popular songwriters on Broadway in the 1920's and 1930's and before the inevitable and tragic end of the partnership, wrote some of the wittiest and prettiest songs of the period.
Pieces like "My Funny Valentine", "Mountain Greenery", "My Heart Stood Still", "This Cant Be Love”, "Have You Met Miss Jones?", and “The Lady Is A Tramp” have not only stood the test of time, they helped set the benchmark standard for the Great American Songbook.
Familiar to Crazy Coqs audiences through his shows highlighting the music of Dudley Moore, Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer, Chris Ingham returns to launch the JBGB July 2021 series with the tales and tunes of the extraordinary Mr Rodgers and Mr Hart. Mr Ingham’s latest presentation is guaranteed to inform and enthuse as well as providing pure musical entertainment.
Chris has that rare ability to combine the music, life and stories of song writers to make compelling entertainment.
An excerpt from Chris Ingham“s recent livestream exploring the music of Jimmy Van Heusen.
“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
