Author: Graham Marsh, Simon Whittle
About the book:
Ronnie Scott's 1959–69 is a warm and intimate portrait of a legendary jazz venue. Published to celebrate the club’s 60th anniversary, it is the first time Warren’s vast archive of jazz photos have been accessed; nearly all the images included in this publication are completely unseen.
In this volume you will find performance shots of the greats of jazz including 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.
