Ronnie Scott’s All Stars return to St Ives September Festival

Date posted: August 7, 2018

Ronnie Scott’s All Stars will be aiming for a sixth successive sell-out year when they return to St Ives for two nights at the Cornish town’s 2018 September Festival.
St Ives Jazz Club – 2015 winner of the Parliamentary Jazz Awards Venue of the Year – have brought the band from the famous London jazz club to the Festival every year since 2013 – and the full house notices have gone up every night.

This year the Ronnie Scott’s Band will present Jazz Classics – based on the 2012 album recorded at the club – at The Western Hotel on Tuesday, September 18.
Much of the material is drawn from The Great American Songbook featuring composers and lyricists such as Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, and Lerner & Loewe.
The album will be performed alongside other classic songs from jazz legends including Ronnie Scott and Tubby Hayes.

The following night’s show will be based on The Ronnie Scott’s Soho Songbook, a glimpse into the history of performances at the club by artists such as Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Michael Bublé and Sarah Vaughan.

This year the Ronnie Scott’s band will consist of vocalist Natalie Williams, who has sold out her monthly residency at the London venue every night for nearly 10 years, James Pearson (piano), Sam Burgess (bass), Alex Garnett (saxophone) and Chris Higginbottom (drums).

Before the Ronnie Scott’s Band arrive, the Jazz Club will be presenting three other top quality evenings of jazz upstairs at The Western.
First up, on Monday, September 10, are Paul McCandless and Charged Particles – a very rare opportunity to catch this supergroup from California.
A recent exciting innovation for the group has been its collaboration with powerhouse reed player Paul McCandless, of the famed super-group Oregon, playing his own compositions.
