Saturday 30th May 2015
Perth Concert Hall, 19:30
This event was part of the 2015 Festival Programme.
The Ronnie Scott's All Stars, led by the club's Musical Director, internationally renowned pianist and creative tour de force, James Pearson, brings 'The Ronnie Scott's Story' to the stage in this new concert tour.
Mixing classic music from the many jazz greats who have performed at the club over its 50 year history - such as Count Basie, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Miles Davis - alongside tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians, police raids, and the mystery bottle of Mumm Champagne which is kept unopened behind the clubs bar. A unique evening celebrating one of the World's most famous jazz venues, it's music, and history.
Since 1959 the tradition at Ronnie Scott’s has always been to have house musicians. That tradition continues with The Ronnie Scott All Stars, lead by pianist and house musical director James Pearson. Frequently to be found supporting some of the world's finest bands and orchestras, they are also used by soloists who come to play at the club, including: Joss Stone, Jeff Beck, Katie Melua, Will Young, Dionne Warwick, Housten Person, Carleen Anderson, Jon Hendricks ... to name just a few.
"Outstanding players. For poise, balance and swing they’re a joy to listen to"
