The beloved Dudley Moore (1935—2002) was one of the UK’s most dazzling jazz pianists and composers, from his early university days discovered by Johnny Dankworth.
He had a unique style and was known for his improvisational skills. Yet his much awarded stage, TV and Cinema appearances served to disguise this original remarkable musical talent.
Moore's jazz piano playing was highly regarded by many musicians and critics. He often incorporated elements of classical music into his jazz performances, creating a distinctive sound. While he may not be as well-known for his musical abilities as he is for his acting career, his jazz piano skills were certainly impressive.
In an anecdote packed evening, the Chris Ingham Trio presents a long-overdue reclamation of the beloved comic actor as an individual and undervalued British musician, and revisit Dudley's irresistible music with selections from their acclaimed CD — "Dudley"
"A vibrant and moving homage" — DOWNBEAT
"Unfailingly tuneful and spiced with gentle harmonic guile ... Dudley would have been delighted" — OBSERVER
