From Beyond The Fringe - Dudley Moore Trio (The)

From Beyond The Fringe

 

Dudley Moore was a gifted jazz composer and pianist, best known in America for his roles in such hits as Arthur, 10 and Foul Play, It's still true that relatively few know of the musical mind behind the comic persona.
Strongly influenced by the playing of Erroll Garner and Oscar Peterson, who he idolised, Dudley's own piano style was singular; refined. Melancholy with a humorous touch.
Dudley formed his first trio in 1960, an aggregation that he maintained for almost a decade despite his involvement with Peter Cook, Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller in Britain's famous first satirical revue, Beyond The Fringe and the beloved television comedy Not Only But Also... During this fertile period Moore also appeared in The Wrong Box (1966, Bryan Forbes) and The Bed Sitting-Room (1969, Richard Lester) and along with his trio, both acted in and scored two of the finest examples of "Swinging London" Cinema; 30 is a Dangerous Age Cynthia (opposite his first wife, Suzy Kendall) and Bedazzled (again, opposite Peter Cook).
Moore and Cook closed each episode of Not Only But Also with the endearing duet Goodbye-ee and the song would be a top twenty hit for them in June 1965. Two years later, the duo responded to the Summer of Love with The LS Bumble Bee, a quite brilliant pastiche of acid psychedelia, that was long thought to have been The Beatles incognito.
Our edition comprises the Dudley Moore Trio's debut single and album and a selection of brilliant, historic musical vignettes and comic sketches involving Dudley from both the London and New York Broadway productions.

"In many ways, the most startling, remarkable thing about Dudley Moore was not the fawn-like sexuality or the enchanting charm of this funny, small man, but his extravagant, promiscuous endowment musically.”
Jonathan Miller

"It seems that a lot of people who haven't known me as a pianist, think I've just started as a comedian. And for them the piano was something extra. But, of course, the piano was something that came before all of what's happening now'
Dudley Moore. 1966
