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. Doors 11pm (weekdays) & 1am (weekends).
Tonight, the Late Late Show presents… Alex Western-King Quintet presented by Alex Garnett!
The Alex Western-King Quintet features some exciting up and coming talents in London. The ensemble plays a number of original tunes, influenced by artists such as Mark Turner, Will Vinson, Kenny Wheeler and Thelonious Monk. They also enjoy playing a wide range of standard and contemporary jazz repertoire. Made up of musicians studying at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, The Royal Academy of Music and recent graduates, this group feels privileged to have regular opportunities to play together in both formal and informal contexts. These experiences act as a vehicle for each member’s musical growth and development, as the promising musicians are able to learn and benefit from each other’s playing.

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.
