“A formidable UK jazz presence rising to her full height.” John Fordham, The Guardian.
Award winning pianist and composer, Nikki Iles brings her 18 piece Jazz Orchestra to Ronnie Scott's, marking a new chapter in a long and distinguished career in British Jazz, gathering together commissions, new orchestrations and compositions alongside the music by Steely Dan and Vince Mendoza, all played by the remarkable band she has assembled. The depth and range of her distinctive writing and arranging suggest it will be an exhilarating night of music bought to vivid life by a top drawer band.
