With Chris Ingham's Rebop Band
Horace Silver was one of the all time jazz greats. He described his hard driving piano style and original composition approach as “meaningful simplicity.” After featuring with Lou Donaldson & then with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Silver formed his own quintet, writing some of the most enduring tunes in jazz such as “The Preacher” “Blowin’ the Blues Away”, “Señor Blues” & “Song for my Father” and many others, while performing them in his distinctively personal “hard bop” blues & gospel style.
No stranger to St.James, Chris Ingham brings his hard driving REBOP ensemble, evoking the style of Horace Silver’s music, adding their own imaginative creativity and improvisations.
Paul Higgs – trumpet, Colin Watling – tenor saxophone, Chris Ingham – piano, Arnie Somogyi – double bass & George Double – drums.
