Picnic & The Ronnie Scott All Stars
9th August 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Direct from London’s world-famous jazz club, Ronnie Scott’s, the ‘All Stars’, take to the stage at Hever to celebrate ‘The Ronnie Scott’s Story’. Mixing classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s – such as Count Basie and Miles Davis – alongside tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians, police raids, and the mystery bottle of Mumm Champagne that sits behind the club’s bar – this is unique evening celebrating one of the world’s most famous jazz venues, its 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 Quintet, led by pianist and Ronnie Scott’s Club 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.
