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.
Due to his incredible technique and sound Lucas is undoubtedly one of the finest young lead alto saxophonists and soprano sax specialists in the country today. A former lead alto saxophonist with NYJO, after graduating from Trinity College of Music in 2011, Lucas has gone on to work with a whole host of different large jazz ensembles, including the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Laurence Cottle Big Band, the Gareth Lockrane Big Band, and the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra. He was recently selected for the 2013 European Youth Jazz Orchestra by a panel of jazz greats - the only UK citizen to be chosen this year.
