Ronnie Scott’s celebrates 55th anniversary with live stream of Dianne Reeves main show & Takuya Kuroda Late Late Show on Thursday 30th October Sold-out Ronnie Scott’s at 55 all-star concert on Friday 31st October

With tickets to their sold out shows in such high demand, Ronnie Scott’s has decided to make a birthday gift to jazz fans the world over, by announcing the live streaming of soul-jazz super-star Dianne Reeves this Thursday at 8.30pm (GMT).  And as if that isn’t enough the club will also be streaming the Late show from rising Japanese trumpet-star and Blue Note recording artist Takuya Kuroda (a key member of Jose James band) at 11.30pm (GMT). Reeves will be performing material from her eagerly anticipated Concord Records release Beautiful Life, whereas Kuroda will perform material from his hip, funky and soulful Blue Note debut Rising Son.
What better way for the venerable club to celebrate it’s anniversary with live broadcasts featuring one of jazz’s greatest global stars and one of it’s fastest rising stars as Ronnie Scott’s proves once again to be at the cutting edge of both the music and new technology.
The live web stream follows Ronnie Scott’s highly successful debut live stream of jazz legend Wynton Marsalis last year, when a worldwide audience of over 25,000 tuned in.
But that isn’t all the party continues on Friday night with a sold-out Ronnie Scott’s at 55 all-star bash featuring firm club favourites Georgie Fame, Carlen Anderson, Guy Barker, Ian Shaw and of course Ronnie Scott’s very own piano maestro James Pearson,
Access to the broadcasts is free.
Viewers will simply need to log onto the club’s website www.ronniescotts.co.uk at 8.30pm and 11.30pm BST on Thursday October 30th

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.
