We are delighted to present the first concert of the new season at our brand new venue, the fabulous Broadway Suite at the Broadway Theatre.

The beloved comic actor Dudley Moore (1935-2002) was also one of the UK’s most dazzling, swinging jazz pianists and a composer of wit and depth. Following their acclaimed Hoagy project, the Chris Ingham Quartet revisit Moore’s music on their new CD Dudley, with sounds from the fabulous 1960s Decca jazz trio albums, the TV show Not Only But Also (1965-70) and the brilliant movie soundtracks for Bedazzled (1967) and 30 Is A Dangerous Age, Cynthia (1968).

“A vibrant and moving homage…Ingham has a warm and generous way with music. ” – DOWNBEAT
“Unfailingly tuneful and spiced with gentle harmonic guile…Dudley would have been delighted” – OBSERVER
“Swing, humour and poignancy…a jazz joy” – MOJO
“The emotional range and depth has resulted in an intimate and heartfelt pleasure” – LONDON JAZZ NEWS
