Wonderful Music of Hoagy Carmichael

The life and music of Hoagy Carmichael with the Chris Ingham trio

Wry, wise, sentimental, down-home and sophisticated, Hoagy Carmichael's songs are loved for their warmth, wit and sheer melodic beauty. This evening at The Crazy Coqs highlights Hoagy's special relationship with the music of legendary jazz cornettist Bix Beiderbecke. The programme features many of the well-known hits (Stardust, How Little We Know, Georgia On My Mind, Skylark, The Nearness Of You, Ole Buttermilk Sky, Lazy Bones, Old Rockin' Chair, et al) as well as some obscure nuggets and delightful curiosities from Hoagy's rich and varied songbook. Featuring the musical sensitivities of Chris Ingham (vocal/piano), Paul Higgs (trumpet), Rev Andrew Brown (bass)
