Wynton Marsalis Live web stream from Ronnie Scott's Tuesday 23rd July - 10:30pm (BST)

In a Ronnie Scott’s first, jazz legend Wynton Marsalis’ sold out show on Tuesday 23rd July is to be broadcast live to a potential audience of millions around the world.  Thanks to the power of the internet and a ground breaking partnership with Panasonic, a world-wide audience will be given an unparalleled opportunity to experience the famed ambience of one of the world’s most iconic venues, swinging to one of jazz’s most iconic stars, all in stunning HD.
Tickets for Wynton Marsalis’ three night (six show) run from 22nd July sold out in a matter of hours, primarily to club members, so, with demand for tickets to see the legendary trumpeter, band leader and cultural champion far out-stripping demand, there is no better time to launch this exciting new venture.  Just as the BBC gave unprecedented coverage of Glastonbury, live streaming from Ronnie Scott’s gives a unique opportunity to those unable to secure tickets to enjoy the music and take a sneak peak inside one of the world’s most iconic venues.
With a capacity of just 220, and almost all shows a complete sell-out, Ronnie Scott’s has turned to technology to help take the unique Ronnie’s experience beyond the walls of the club. Simon Cooke, the club’s Managing Director, explains: ”We are keen to give those who can’t make the journey into London’s Soho, people too far away or simply those who can’t get a ticket the opportunity to enjoy the Ronnie Scott’s magic for themselves and we are delighted that an artist of Wynton’s stature, arguably the most influential jazz musician of the last forty years, has agreed to feature in our very first broadcast from the club.”
As expected from Ronnie Scott’s the technical set-up will be of high end, with a state -of-the art multi camera AV set-up alongside a broadcast and recording studio installed in the historic Frith Street venue. The broadcast will be shot using discreetly positioned Panasonic integrated remote video cameras and at least one handheld (the same used by the BBC for HD recording).  Meanwhile the club’s AV team will mix the audio/visual stream live, broadcasting in-the-moment vivid high definition images onto screens and into home across the globe.  This remarkably sophisticated multi-camera set up – undoubtedly one of the best in the world for a club of this size -  allows low-light filming of multiple positions giving viewers a genuine impression of being amidst the live audience and a real feeling for the intimate atmosphere of one of the world’s greatest jazz clubs - all without detracting from the experience of those lucky enough to have a ticket to the show.
Access to the broadcast is free.
Viewers will simply need to log onto the club’s website at 10.30pm BST on Tuesday 23rd July.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
