Marigolds Jazz Club presents Chris Ingham - A Stan Getz Tribute on Friday 30th August 2019

Stan Getz Tribute: Chris Ingham Quartet featuring Mark Crooks: www.chrisingham.co.uk

Chris Ingham keyboards, Mark Crooks tenor saxophone, Darren McCarthy bass and Joel Barford drums.

From the late 1940s to the early 1990s, tenor saxophonist Stan Getz was one of the great, individual instrumental artists in jazz. As jazz itself went through many phases, Getz as a player was remarkably consistent, producing album after album of poetic, swinging music. While his accompaniments were elaborately varied, Getz’s playing was always unmistakable, characterised by his singing, luminescent tone, his unmatched elegance, passion and lyricism and an almost supernatural melodic creativity.

Chris Ingham Formed the quartet in 2013. Chris has led over 130 performances of the Hoagy Carmichael and Dudley Moore projects. He is also musical director of film song repertory quintet Jazz At The Movies, a record producer (Ruthie Henshall, Joanna Eden), author (Rough Guides to The Beatles and Frank Sinatra) and TV composer (Wartime Crime, How The Beatles Changed The World). He curates jazz clubs in Diss (The Corn Hall) and Bury St Edmunds (Hunter Club).

Mark Crooks is a graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music. Mark is the featured woodwind specialist in the John Wilson and Back To Basie orchestras and as star clarinettist has performed salutes to Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman with the Solid Senders Orchestra with Strings. Leader of his own group featuring guitarist Colin Oxley, Mark has produced three acclaimed CDs.
