Pianist and composer Randy Ingram has been hailed as “gifted” (Jazz Times), “astute, self-possessed” (The New York Times) “a formidable composer” (The San Francisco Chronicle), and possesses “a stylish, intimate and very delicate touch” (All About Jazz Italia). Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Ingram grew up in Southern California and received his Masters degree at the New England Conservatory of Music before moving to NYC. He has studied with pianists Fred Hersch, Danilo Perez and Alan Pasqua, as well as legendary composers George Russell and Bob Brookmeyer. Ingram has performed and recorded with leading musicians including John Patitucci, Ari Hoenig, Benny Maupin, Tierney Sutton, Marcus Gilmore, Joe LaBarbera, Kendrick Scott, Lage Lund, Duncan Sheik and the late Billy Higgins. In the top-grossing Swedish Film “Waltz for Monica”, a biography of the jazz singer Monica Zetterlund, Ingram portrayed one of his heroes, the pianist BIll Evans.

Ingram’s newest album for Sunnyside Records, “The Wandering”, is an intimate collection of duets with the great bassist Drew Gress, and has received a tremendous critical reception. “Quietly intellectual, pianist Randy Ingram, spins delicate gossamer gold with bassist Drew Gress”, says All About Jazz. The Observer calls “The Wandering” “as calming and carefully crafted a conversation you’re likely to hear between a grand piano and stand-up bass anytime soon.” Ingram tours worldwide and headlined the Jazz A Domergue Festival in Cannes, France. In the fall of 2016 he was honored with a composition fellowship at New Hampshire’s prestigious MacDowell Colony. A committed educator, Ingram is the jazz piano instructor at the United Nations International School and has given masterclasses at conservatories and universities in the US, Europe, and Japan.
