Ronnie Scott's

[United Kingdom] London London

In 1959, saxophonist Ronnie Scott opened the door to a small basement club in Londonís west end where local musicians could jam. Today, in its new home in buzzing Soho, Ronnie Scottís is one of the worldís most famous jazz clubs attracting full to bursting audiences practically every night. Since the early days of Sarah Vaughn, Count Basie and Miles Davis, the club continues to present the biggest names in jazz including Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson and Kurt Elling, all of whom shun the concert halls in favour of the intimate and welcoming environs of the club. Ronnie Scottís is also a club firmly on the cutting edge; the first place to catch hotly-tipped rising stars, visionary artists and the next big thing. With itís introduction of the Late Late Show, a relaxed Ď50ís speakeasy vibe with doors open till the wee hours, the Wednesday Jazz Jam (a late night instrumental jazz jam session), plus Ronnieís Bar (upstairs at the club) eclectic programme of DJ sets and live music including Latin, jive, blues, flamenco and even tap dancing, Ronnie Scottís has become the hang for Londonís young hipsters and the place for music fans of all ages seeking jazz royalty in the worlds most stylish famous jazz club.
