BIO

Randy Ingram, pianist/composer, has been hailed as “gifted” (Jazz Times) and “a formidable composer” (San Francisco Chronicle). “A young pianist drawn to contemporary harmony and a sleek rhythmic sensibility; Astute, self-possessed” (The New York Times).  Originally from California, Ingram attended the New England Conservatory of Music before moving to Brooklyn, NY in 2003. He has played with leading musicians including John Patitucci, Ari Hoenig, Benny Maupin, Tierney Sutton, Kendrick Scott and the late Billy Higgins.  Ingram made his acting debut in 2013, portraying one of his heroes, Bill Evans, in the Swedish biopic “Monica Z” about the great singer Monica Zetterlund.  His newest recording for Sunnyside Records, The Wandering, is an intimate collection of duets with the esteemed bassist Drew Gress, which is “as calming and carefully crafted a conversation you’re likely to hear between a grand piano and stand-up bass anytime soon” (The Observer).
