RONNIE SCOTT’S BIG BAND
BASIE & ELLINGTON
7.30pm St George’s Church, Deal
In a special and rare performance outside London, the UK’s premiere jazz organisation brings its star-studded big band led by the inimitable Pete Long to recreate two iconic jazz albums: The Atomic Mr Basie and Ellington at Newport. Both albums set the jazz world alight, and tonight’s performances recreate theses albums in both style and authenticity, including Paul Gonsalves’ hedonistic saxophone solo.
A must for all jazz lovers and people who just love life!
