Londra, Inghilterra. 5/2/1942.

Ha frequentato l’Università di Oxford laureandosi in cinese classico. Ha iniziato a suonare nella metà degli anni’60 nei migliori gruppi maistream inglesi, come quelli di Sandy Brown, Bruce Turner, Dick Sudhalter, Lennie Hastings e Ron Russell. Nel 1970 ha collaborato anche con la cantante Susannah McCorkle, sia come accompagnatore che come arrangiatore, con la quale ha effettuato anche una tournè negli U.S.A. ed ha inciso dei buoni album per la EMI. Ha collaborato con diversi musicisti americani di passaggio come Red Allen, Pee Wee Russell, Charlie Shavers e Ben Webster. Nel 1978 si è stabilito negli States dove ha lavorato con Ed Polcer, con Benny Goodman e nella World’s Greatest Jazz Band. Ha preso parte a vari Festival e si è esibito in vari club. Nel 1980 ha fatto una tournèe in Inghilterra con la “Memorial Eddie Condon Band” di Ed Polcer. Nel 1984 ha preso parte al Festival Jazz di Allegheny. Ha effettuato una tournee con Maxime Sullivan, Bob Reitmeier, Lynn Seaton e John Von Ohlen. Ha continuato a soggiornare negli U.S.A. anche se sporadicamente è tornato in patria. Ha inciso con la cantante Maxine Sullivan ed in Europa con Marty Grosz. Keith Ingham continua a produrre una varietà di progetti affascinanti all’interno di quello che potrebbe essere chiamato il “jazz classico”. Pianista maturo, molto duttile, attivo in una serie larga di stili. Le sue interpretazioni sono funzionali, molto vicine allo spirito dei motivi originali, ma sempre con qualcosa di nuovo e di fresco.

(Stomp ROBB006) Burnham, Bucks, 20 Giugno 1971.



Tunisi. 1934.

Ha studiato a Parigi negli anni’50, dove ha frequentato e suonato nelle cave. E’ entrato nel trio di Jack Denjean, ha suonato poi con Henri Renaud. Ha continuatom a suonare free lance in diversi locali accompagnando anche vari musicisti americani tra i quali Lester Young.



Gruppo vocale molto influenzato dai più famosi Mills Brothers. Diversamente dai Mills però gli Ink trovano una originale anche se alla lunga stucchevole formula per avere successo, il loro repertorio è fatto quasi esclusivamente di canzoni sentimentali e di vivaci bozzetti bluesy. La voce conduttrice è quella di Bill Kenny, voce affettata, che enuncia con passione i testi in contrasto con le voci brunite dei colleghi, nei quali figura il basso profondo di Hoppy Jones
