Leon Greening is fast making a name for himself as a brilliant jazz pianist who is among the best of the current crop on the British jazz scene. Inspired by his predecessors Wynton Kelly, Bud Powell, Vic Feldman and Dudley Moore, his melodic, post-bebop playing is causing a real stir. So come along and hear what all the fuss is about.
He has some redoubtable companions to work with. Bassist Adam King has performed widely in Europe and the UK, and is one of the most sought-after young bass players around. Immensely talented drummer Steve Brown is well established, and brings to any band a sense of relaxation and good humour.

In 1959, saxophonist Ronnie Scott opened the door to a small basement club in London’s west end where local musicians could jam. Today, it is one of the world’s most famous jazz clubs attracting packed houses and the biggest names in jazz and popular music and Ronnie Scott’s welcoming, stylish setting is also home to London’s coolest late night hang.
