Each night Monday to Saturday, after the main act, Ronnie Scott’s presents the Late Late Show, where some of the UK’s finest jazz talents take to the stage for a late night blowing session.
Recently featured alongside leading players from all over the world at the “Bass 2012” convention in Copenhagen, Simon Woolf is a lyrical double-bassist in the tradition of his great idol, Red Mitchell. Simon Woolf has enjoyed long associations with leading UK jazz artists Andy Panayi, Mark Nightingale, Geoff Simkins, Dave Cliff, Peter Jacobsen, Bobby Wellins and been heard accompanying such US jazz greats as Benny Golson, Harry Allen, Ruby Braff, George van Eps & Howard Alden. Musical theatre has included on-stage appearences in West End runs of Cy Coleman’s ‘I Love My Wife’ & the National Theatre production of ‘High Society’. Simon Woolf studied initially with Tristano disciple Peter Ind, latterly with orchestral maestro Tom Martin & jazz legend Michael Moore (ex Bill Evans, Bob Brookmeyer, currently Dave Brubeck). An active teacher himself, many of Simon Woolf’s students have gone on to successful careers on the London Jazz scene.
As well as double-bass, Simon Woolf performs live on piano and bass guitar, and writes and arranges for his own and other ensembles. Latterly he has completed full teacher training and works with some very jazzy youngsters in local Primary schools.
