Booking now closed, a few tickets still left on the door.

Set to be a historic few nights at Ronnie Scott's, Legendary singer/hammond B3 player Georgie Fame with the Guy Barker Big Band.

A genuine legend of the British music scene for over fifty years, Fame’s blend of jazz and R&B earned him three number one hits in the early ‘60s. He has been a fixture of the Soho scene since then, when his cool vocals and superlative Hammond B-3 playing lit up such legendary venues as the Flamingo and Wag club and a key member of Van Morrison’s groups. He appears here with a cracking big band led by trumpeter Guy Barker and featuring some of the finest names in UK Jazz. Expect swinging soul-jazz and rip-roaring arrangements of classic R&B from a man still at the top of his game after over 50 years in the business.

The James Pearson trio tonight

James Pearson:

The owner of a ferocious piano technique coupled with a sense of musicality rarely heard, James is one of the most exciting to musicians to have emerged from the U.K in the last 25 years. After working with him, British jazz legend Sir John Dankworth declared: "James Pearson is an exceptionally gifted artist. His masterful playing makes him head and shoulders above the rest of his contemporaries. He shows signs of true greatness". James also leads the Ronnie Scott's All Stars and Ronnie Scott's Club Quintet and also finds time to be the musical director of Ronnie Scott's Club!

The Trio also includes:

Sam Burgess:  

Double Bass Sam is a stalwart of the UK jazz scene. As well as appearing on numerous film soundtracks such as 'Bridget Jones's Diary' and 'Hannibal'. Sam’s thumping, pounding, relentlessly driving bass lines have been heard accompanying the likes of Bob James, Billy Kilson, Gary Novak, Joe Lock, Dave Kekowski, Guy Barker, Dave O'Higgins, Pete King, Gareth Williams, Claire Martin, Jim Mullen, Alan Barnes, Tim Whitehead, John Horler, Gwyneth Herbert, John Dankworth, The BBC Big Band and Robbie Williams.

Chris Higginbottom:

Chris Higginbottom is one of the UK’s top drummers, currently a member of the Ronnie Scott’s Allstars and Gilad Atzmon’s Orient House Ensemble. A Royal Academy of Music graduate, Chris lived in New York for eight years where he played with many of the biggest names in jazz including Mark Murphy and Seamus Blake.

He has performed all over the world including the Blue Note Tokyo, Birdland in New York, the House of Blues in Chicago, The Roxy in LA, Montreal Jazz Festival and countless other venues.

Since relocating to London in 2010 Chris has also performed/toured with Kyle Eastwood, Westlife, Marti Pellow, Georgie Fame, Carleen Anderson and Omar. He has released two albums as a leader - 'One' (2005, Basho records), and ‘Where Land Ends’ (2013, F-IRE)
