Chris Ingham Quartet presents Getz: A Musical Portrait

From the late 1940s to the early 1990s, tenor saxophonist Stan Getz was one of the great, individual instrumental artists in jazz. Getz remained remarkably consistent as jazz changed, producing album after album of poetic, swinging music.

Getz’s playing was characterised by his singing, luminescent tone, his unmatched facility for elegance, passion and lyricism, thriving on challenge and dedicated to keeping his music fresh and vital. The result is a musical legacy amongst the richest in jazz.

Ingham formed his quartet in 2013 and produced a variety of shows from Hoagy Carmichael to Dudley Moore project, Jazz At the Movies as well as a composer for TV. He is joined by Mark Crooks, Joe Pettitt and George Double who collectively have performed with Claire Teal, Ruthie Henshall, Marc Almond and Colin Oxley.

Ingham has chosen excellent collection featuring the superb saxophone sound of Mark Crooks...the band are in fine classic swinging form...extremely expressive.
