Sunday October 13

The Music of
Horace Silver
With Chris Ingham’s
REBOP Quintet

Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dean Street, Soho, London

For the end of your weekend, what better life enhancing music for the week ahead could you imagine than the music of the great Horace Silver.

Performed by one of the UK’s most highly rated ensembles, the 

Chris Ingham REBOP quintet. Following on from their successful “Miles in the 50’s”and “Blue Note Years” Dean Street concerts, audiences are in for another evening of inspiring, uplifting music.

Horace Silver was one of the all-time jazz greats.  He described his hard driving piano style and original composition approach as “meaningful simplicity”.   Silver created some of the most enduring tunes in jazz  such  as “The Preacher”,  “Blowin’  the  Blues Away”, “Señor Blues” &  “Song for  my Father”, the evocative ballad “Peace”, and many others, while  performing them in his distinctively personal “hard bop” blues and gospel style. 

After sell out success in the London Jazz Festival with the music of Miles Davis and later with The Blue Note Years, Chris  Ingham – no stranger to Dean Street audiences, returns with   his   hard   driving  REBOP ensemble,   evoking   the   style   of Horace Silver’s  music,   adding    their    own imaginative   creativity and improvisations.


Here’s a flavour of what’s in store with the sound of the original
