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 is a pianist based in Greenwich, and has performed with musicians including Gareth Lockrane, Martin Speake and Stan Sulzmann, and has played in the bands of musicians including Anita Wardell, NYC Saxophonist Arun Luthra and the UK-based Australian Saxophonist Ray Warleigh. He has performed at most of the best known venues and festivals within the UK, including Ronnie Scotts, The Southbank Centre, and Brecon Jazz Festival. He has been described by broadcaster Helen Mayhew as “one of the brightest young stars in the jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser, and a brilliant prospect for the future.”
