The much-loved comic actor Dudley Moore (1935-2002) was not only one of the UK’s most dazzling and swinging jazz pianists but also a composer of wit and depth. As a musician Dudley rose to prominence in appearances and recordings with the Johnny Dankworth Orchestra as well as leading an outstanding trio of his own in clubs and concert halls across the country and latterly on TV. His musical – and anecdotal – legacy is brilliantly recreated by pianist Chris Ingham and his top group of collaborators, Paul Higgs (trumpet), Geoff Gascoigne (double bass) and George Double (drums).
