In 1959, saxophonist Ronnie Scott opened the door to a small basement club in London’s west end where local musicians could jam. Today, it is one of the world’s most famous jazz clubs attracting packed houses and the biggest names in jazz and popular music and Ronnie Scott’s welcoming, stylish setting is also home to London’s coolest late night hang.
Each night Monday to Saturday, after the main act, Ronnie Scott’s presents the Late Late Show, where some of the UK’s finest jazz talents take to the stage for a late night blowing session.
Sam Leak is a pianist that has been described by JazzFM's Helen Mayhew as 'one of the brightest young stars in the Jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser and a brilliant prospect for the future.' Tonight he leads a high profile quartet featuring Saxophonist Alex Merritt, Double Bassist Mark Lewandowski and Drummer Tim Giles. They will be performing a series of fresh interpretations of the standard repertoire.
