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.
ABOUT THE BAND...
This band is a new collaboration between long standing UK musical partners Osian Roberts and Steve Fishwick and US Baritone Saxophonist Frank Basile. The UK musicians met Frank on the internet shortly before traveling to New York to record their album with Cedar Walton. During that trip met Frank in person where they played together and formed a mutual respect and appreciation for each others music. The music is an explosive mix of originals and standards firmly rooted in the Hard Bop genre. Frank has established himself as one of the busiest and most versatile musicians on the NYC scene having worked with Dave Holland, Joe Lovano, Jimmy Heath, Dizzy Gillespie Alumni Orchestra, the Vanguard Big Band, Christian Mcbride and Bob Mintzer amongst many others
