Ronnie Scott
« on: September 17, 2019, 04:05:30 PM »
Part of the 60th anniversary commemorations of legendary London jazz's club, this upcoming (november) volume looks essential purchasing, especially as most of the pictures haven't seen the light of day before:

I've sent them a request to pre-order! Looks good GS.
When I visited London I made sure to spend an evening at Ronnie Scott's. Unfortunately, if I would have been there 2 weeks earlier I could have seen Terry Callier before he past...  :( Still, not complaining though,  as the history of the place was enough for me...

Wasn't there last time I went to London (too many years ago, damn!), Mike, but it's one of the places high on my list. I'll pre-order that soon too.

For those fortunate enough to live in London or nearby, this is the perfect complement to the book:
