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.
