For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
Ithere's going to be a program on BBC2, Sunday 15th at 9 pm about the club, its origins and an insight into the iconic Jazz venue.

I met one of the people involved in making the program and from what he said it should be worrh watching...for BBC2 to pick it up. It should be good viewing.

Jazz clubs were never the same once they banned smoking. They smelled funny and atmosphere was diminished. Shame.

It was miles better than the Southampton jazz club I went to a few times.

Although the Soton club had bullet holes in the ceiling, put there by one of the madder musicians who had visited over the years. Forget which one.

Bump 'cos there's a program about Miles Davis on BBC4 in half an hour followed by the program about Ronnie Scott's that I mentioned in the OP

I saw Sade do her first solo concert there one Sunday evening. In the audience was Spandau, Bowie, Strange, Boy George, Bob Elms...endless list of who's who of the early 80s.

Re: For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
IIRC the bloke I met who is one of the editors/producers said that they talk about having to change the music they showcase, modern day shitcunts into grime, pop etc won't appreciate Jazz/ Jazz Funk music so they have to change.

I know that Mi-Soul host some nights upstairs which are popular, I'm looking forward to the program next week.

Tonight:

We are very grateful to the Arts Council, The DCMS and the Government for this Culture Recovery Fund award and are delighted that they have recognized the fundamental importance of Ronnie Scott’s as a national and international jazz icon and a figurehead for UK jazz. #Here for culture

Tonight we will livestream one of the most popular bands to play the club, having held a monthly residency for an astonishing 13 years - it could only be Soul Family! Hosted by the wonderfully charismatic and talented soul singer Natalie Williams and her band, Soul Family offers the chance to catch some of the best R&B, soul and jazz musicians in the UK up close and personal.
The Soul Family Band, fronted by MOBO nominated vocalist, Natalie Williams is joined by an incredible group of regular singers (and artists in their own right): Sharlene Hector (Basement Jaxx), Brendan Reilly (Disclosure), and LaDonna Young (Emeli Sande, Sam Smith, Corinne Bailey Rae)The rhythm section is made up Robin Mullarkey on bass (Zero7, Roisin Murphy, Laura Mvula, ESKA), Martyn Kaine on drums (Kyle Eastwood, Nitin Sawhney, Jocelyn Brown), and Phil Peskett on keys (Moloko, Cinematic Orchestra, Nik Kershaw)

It’s a good venue Eastside, upstairs for upmarket food and cocktails etc, looking down on the stage, downstairs more clubby. And the acts they get are very good generally.

Have always liked the jazz Cafe as a venue, saw Leroy Hutson there cpl of years ago and he was quality

Re: For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
Not done Ronnies yet but we go up to the Jazz Cafe quite a lot. Fuck the chin-stroking, there’s actually a major jazz/afrobeat/funk/electronica thing coming out of Deptford/Peckham last five years or so. Moses Boyd, Kokoroko, Nubya Garcia etc. well worth checking out.

Re: For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
Not judging them at all... it's still worth a visit...Just making the point that when things were a bit more run down and shabby it was more conducive to better music. Now everything is shiny but it's all a little sterile.

Which is Soho and London in general these days.

Double edged sword init?

Re: For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
Well, in the last 30 years they’ve had loads of Jazz funk, soul and boogie. I mean 30 years , 7 nights a week and you’re judging them?

I know! In 2 weeks I'm 48 years young 😅

I grew up in Kennington so Soho was my local playground...and Camden when they were something else - before the gold rush.

Re: For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
I'm more a fan of Jazz Funk than the chin stroking stuff that came after the classic jazz of 50's/60's. I think of that as more like the worst examples of prog rock in a Jazz context.

I saw Loose Tubes there with Django Bates in the late 80's...they were bloody good, I tell thee.

Re: For fans of Ronnie Scott's or Jazz
I used to go every Christmas (most Christmases?) to see George Melly and John Chilton's Feetwarmers.

A massive old tart, but what an entertainer!

George was pretty good, too.

Other than that, I occasionally ended up there for that important final couple after ten hours solid on it.
