1:45pm PETER IND & FRIENDS. Bass player Peter Ind’s playing is universally admired and respected throughout the International Jazz scene. One of the most charismatic musicians on the scene today Peter emigrated to the USA in the early 50’s where his phenomenal technique and impressive musical ability honed by his studies with the iconic pianist Lennie Tristano, led to work with Jazz greats such as Lee Konitz, Buddy Rich, Coleman Hawkins and Billie Holliday. He returned to the UK in the mid 60’s where he established himself as a performer and teacher of great distinction, adding a record label (Wave) to his achievements and then, in the mid 80’s, opening the internationally renowned “Bass Clef” Jazz Club in London, which he ran for more than 10 years. Peter is also an established author with several published books to his name. Now in his 80’s Peter is still playing as brilliantly as ever and is with great pleasure we welcome this iconic figure to the Festival with a gig which he promises will have “a little of everything, music, prose, poetry…and a bit of Oud!”.
“..full of wit and vigour… Ind's solos exploit his ever-resourceful technique and resonant tone” Evening Standard.
