A welcome return for this superb jazz, pop and soul singer whose expressive voice and dynamic personality has been enthralling Ronnie Scott’s audiences since 1987, receiving tumultuous responses each time.  American-born Madeline Bell is immensely talented with a voice that can tower to spectacular heights then swoop to a deep emotional intensity. 

Bell began her singing career in the mid 50’s as a member of her local gospel choir. Her compelling, unique and powerfully penetrating voice would take her across the world including a European tour with a musical, ‘Black Nativity’ which in 1962 hit London, the city she would make her home.  Bell went on to work as a backing singer with many stars including Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones, Scott Walker, Long John Baldry, Joe Cocker and Elton John to name a few.  Her first UK solo album in 1967 included the tune ‘Picture Me Gone’, recognised as a momentous Northern Soul classic.  In the late 1960’s, Bell joined the contemporary pop combo, Blue Mink with whom she had the uplifting hit, ‘Melting Pot’.  Madeline has released numerous CDs revealing supreme talents and array of styles.  Expect sophisticated jazz and soul delivered with all the charm and panache of one of the UK’s favourite singers.

James Pearson:-

Musical Director at Ronnie Scott’s and the owner of a ferocious piano technique coupled with a sense of musicality rarely heard, James Pearson is one of the most exciting musicians to have emerged from the U.K in the last 25 years. After working with him, the late jazz legend Sir John Dankworth declared: "James Pearson is an exceptionally gifted artist. His masterful playing makes him head and shoulders above the rest of his contemporaries. He shows signs of true greatness".

Sam Burgess:- 

Double Bass Despite only being in his early 30’s, already Sam is a stalwart of the UK jazz scene. As well as appearing on numerous film soundtracks such as 'Bridget Jones's Diary' and 'Hannibal'.
