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.
Allison is a skilful multi-instrumentalist, equally at home on either alto saxophone or flute, and as such has found herself in great demand as a member of numerous big bands and as a backing musician. She is heavily influenced by the West Coast sounds of Paul Desmond and Art Pepper, with whom she is often compared.
She has worked with Scott Hamilton, The BBC Big Band, The John Dankworth Orchestra, Back To Basie, and currently leads a quartet comprising of leading London jazz luminaries Leon Greening, Steve Brown and Julian Bury.
