Product Description

Product Description

Before he opened the internationally renowned club that bears his name, Ronnie Scott had already carved a formidable reputation as one of the UKs finest jazz musicians. However, Scotts natural diffidence meant that his recorded appearances were few and far between, with several of his early LPs becoming sought-after rarities. This 2 CD set aims to redress the balance and includes all the albums Scott recorded under his own name from 1956 to 1961 together with a selection of featured recordings made under the leadership of others. These 28 tracks (of which 22 appear on CD for the first time) present some of the best known names in British jazz, including Jimmy Deuchar, Tubby Hayes, Joe Harriott, Dizzy Reece, Stan Tracey and Phil Seamen. Scott is also heard going head to head with one of his heroes, Zoot Sims, on one of three numbers recorded at the very first Ronnie Scott club in Sohos Gerrard Street. This anthology also contains a comprehensive booklet essay by noted jazz saxophonist and writer Simon Spillett. Indispensable listening for all British jazz fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Scott !! 11 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a really very fine compilation of Ronnie's work with various combos during the 50's and 60's. It's a veritable "who's who" of Britsh modern jazzers and the cream of the crop during that period - with such luminaries as Jimmy Deuchar, Tubby Hayes,Phil Seaman and Dizzy Reece (to name but a few) - adding considerably to the musical and historical interest of these CD's. Ronnie probably has not received the credit he deserves as a leading light in the biirth and development of British "Be-Bop"- he was undoubtedly one of the finest exponents of the art of modern jazz tenor playing - and this release goes a long way towards rectifying that omission. There are a great many delights within the tracks on offer - too many to pick out individual examples -and the whole package (which includes a very thorough and informative booklet written by none other than Simon Spillett) comes very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soho Blues 1 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Given as a present as the recipient played drums at Ronnie Scott's for a while. Was bought on a special birthday as a touch of nostalgia and went down well. Arrived quickly and was just as described.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 13 Oct 2013
By Neville
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent CD. I'm moving away from studio and concert recordings in favour of clubs. I think jazz is best heard in the intimate club setting. Or if you can't afford the entry fee, or stay awake half the night witing for the star to come on, then on CD recording of club appearances.
