Ronnie Scott's October 24 2019

Had a lovely afternoon at the Ronnie Scott Blue Plaque event in Gerrard st  in London's Soho, had a chat with Soho George a proper face in the area such a dapper fella met some amazing people  spoke about the book and showed it to many that were there and interested shame about the weather but Ronnie would have really seen the funny side of this and most probably would have been saying look at all these idiots … it  nice to be invited back to the club for a wine and a posh sarnie thank you to all involved you done Ronnie proud

what a week October 19 2019

"Wow" what a week this has been First of all the book came out with an exhibition at London's Barbican Centre chatted to lots of people who came and saw the exhibit and a few that didn't had wonderful feedback and comments  I even done some interviews with a few more to follow also signed some books. Uncle Fred would have loved all the attention surrounding his work the thought that people still enjoying looking at these amazing photographs some 50 years on, people having a copy of the book on a coffee table in their homes or shops he really would be so so proud I know he would like to have thanked all involved and all those who have brought the book and came to the exhibition so on his behalf "Thank you so much"

Freddy's Book June 10 2019

the name of the book is :- 

Ronnie Scott's 1959-69 

it has already had a very favourable review ……..reading 

Ronnie Scott's 1959-69 is due for publication on October 17th 2019, accompanied by an exhibition at the Barbican in London.

If you know Reel Art Press then you know that they only ever produce brilliant and beautiful books and this promises to be up there with some of their best.

Ronnie Scott's in London is one of the worlds most celebrated Jazz clubs and this book marks the clubs 60th anniversary. Freddy Warren began photographing Ronnie Scott's when it was still a building site and went on to photograph every happening at the club for over ten years.

This is the first time his vast archive has been accessed and nearly all of the images are completely unseen. Photographs of Ronnie and Pete sitting around a fire warming their hands on the building site and inspecting walls are followed by performance shots of the greats of Jazz including Miles Davis, Art Blakey,             Stan Getz, Zoot Simms,Duke Ellington, Nina Simone and many more. Powerful on stage portraits are accompanied by relaxed off stage moments such as Yusef Lateef holding an impromptu meeting around soup pots in the Kitchen. This book is a warm and intermate portrait of a legendary jazz venue. 

 

to say i was very pleased to have read this is an under statement I know my uncle Fred would be so happy and humbled by the attention his work is getting so on his behalf i would like to thank you
