About Randy Ingram

A gifted pianist, Randy Ingram is an adept improviser and accompanist with a warm, harmonically sophisticated approach to post-bop jazz and standards. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Ingram moved with his parents to Laguna Beach, California, where he first started playing piano around age four. He was already an adept performer by his teens, playing in a jazz trio with classmates bassist Billy Mohler and future Kneebody drummer Nate Wood. After high school, he honed his skills at the University of Southern California, where he studied on scholarship. He gigged regularly around the Los Angeles area during this period, appearing with Joe La Barbera, Tierney Sutton, Billy Higgins, and others. After graduating, he garnered a further scholarship to Boston's New England Conservatory of Music, where he earned his master's degree. Moving to Brooklyn in 2003, he quickly found work with such luminaries as Joel Frahm, Ben Monder, Kendrick Scott, and others. In 2007 he earned the ASCAP Young Jazz Composer's Award, and made his solo debut two years later with The Road Ahead. Sky/Lift, a quartet date featuring guitarist Mike Moreno, bassist Matt Clohesy, and drummer Jochen Rueckert, followed in 2014. In 2017 Ingram paired with bassist Drew Gress for the intimate duo session The Wandering. ~ Matt Collar
