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.
John is an experienced composer as well as a trained classical and jazz pianist, and currently directs the E17 big band. He has toured the UK and Europe with Gilad Atzmon and is currently working with Tim Garland’s Lighthouse Trio, Tim Whitehead, Guillermo Rozenthuler’s folkloric quartet ‘Rioplatenses’, Dog Soup, and the Koby Israelite Group.
He has played at all major UK venues including Ronnie Scotts, the 606 Club, Pizza Express, the Bloomsbury Theatre, Bridgewater Hall, St Davids Hall Cardiff and the Sage Gateshead. John is also the pianist for many tango groups, including the Birmingham-based ‘El Ultimo Tango’ and Transtango, a multimedia project featuring Tim Garland and Eduardo Vassello.
