The Dudley Moore Story: Jazz from Dagenham to Hollywood
Posted on 10th May 2023 by Thomas Kuglin
Another fabulous storytelling concert from the National Jazz Archive, we're pleased to present the story of local-boy-done-good Dudley Moore on Saturday 15 July 2023 at 2:30pm.
Famed for his phenomenal radio, TV, and Hollywood film career, Moore was a classically trained pianist from Dagenham who discovered and performed jazz at almost every opportunity.
At this – our next National Jazz Archive fundraising gig – we welcome huge Dudley Moore fan, phenomenal pianist, and superb jazz storyteller Nick Tomalin and his E17 Jazz Trio, to tell the incredible story of one of the UK's favourite stars and Dudley's musical journey from Essex* to the Hollywood Hills!
*Dagenham used to be in Essex!
Nick is supported by one of the UK's most in-demand bassists Dave Manington, and top-notch drummer Marek Dorcik, all of whom are key members of E17 Jazz: one of London's premier jazz collectives based in Walthamstow, East London.
Tickets cost £20.00 and can be ordered by telephone from the Archive between 10.00am–1.00pm on 020 8502 4701.
