Jazz Portrait: Dom Pipkin Pumps Piano

JAZZ PORTRAIT: DOM PIPKIN PUMPS PIANO

Dom Pipkin is said to “flay the organ within a millimetre” of the great Jazz organist Jimmy Smith. He writes and sings his own songs “like a ring tailed racoon”, referencing New Orleans favourites such as Professor Longhair, Huey “Piano” Smith, Lee Dorsey
and James Booker.

Dom leads his own group, The Ikos. In this jazz painting he is on keyboard with The Fallen Heroes at a Jazz in the  Barn concert in Throwley, Kent. The Fallen Heroes are famed for their  high energy performances of blues, funky jazz and contemporary New Orleans street beat.
Right down Dom’s street!

More recently Dom was pianist and musical director with Paloma Faith but always intended to get back to his beloved jazz and Ikos sooner rather than later.
