Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Ronnie Scott's Hoarding Tribute

Ronnie Scott’s jazz club is to celebrate the legacy of the late, great Ronnie Scott, with a giant 12 metre-square hoarding of the legendary saxophonist, to be placed on the Frith Street façade of Ronnie Scott’s while the building is redecorated.
The iconic photograph of Ronnie enjoying a cigarette outside the club used for the hoarding was taken by renowned writer and photographer Val Wilmer and the giant tribute features one of Ronnie’s legendary bon mots ‘I love this place, it's just like home, filthy and full of strangers’.
