Welcome

Hi my name is Simon, nephew of the "world famous" Jazz photographer Freddy Warren. As the domain name suggests "from Art Farmer to Zoot Sims" Freddie worked with them all.
My fascination for my uncles photography goes back more years than I care to remember, I spent many hours as a child with Freddy in his Euston dark room watching Freddy bring his pictures to life.
Tragically Freddy died in 2010 when his Euston apartment in North London caught fire, unfortunately some of Freddy’s work was destroyed along with his album collection but, a significant amount of his private collection still remains.

I was honoured to have been left 1000's (some of which have never to be seen) negatives after his death. I spend my days scanning, cleaning & preserving his life's work. This hasn’t changed the colour, exposure or the energy he famously captured in all his pictures.

Welcome to his personal gallery.

New Book - Ronnie Scotts 1959-69

"This book is for modern jazz fans who were not there but wish they had been, and a visual record for those who were." -- Graham Marsh

This is the first time photographer Freddy Warren's vast archive has been accessed and nearly all images are completely unseen. Photographs of Ronnie warming his hands around a fire and inspecting walls on the building site at Frith Street are followed by performance shots of the greats of jazz at both the "old" and "new" Soho locations. Warren captured Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, 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 intimate portrait of a legendary jazz venue. It will be accompanied by an exhibition at The Barbican in London in fall 2019.
