Jazz Scene at the Ronnie Scott Club


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A series featuring some of Britain's top jazz artists at Europe's top Jazz Club
Tonight: The John Surman Quartet
John Surman (baritone and soprano saxophone), Mike Osborne (alto saxophone), Harry Miller (bass), Alan Jackson (drums)

John Surman is in the forefront of what might be called avant garde jazz in this country, and he has come very quickly to the notice of the jazz world as a most exciting saxophonist. This year, for the first time, he topped the Melody Maker jazz soloist poll, adding this to an already impressive list of awards in Britain and Europe. In tonight's programme he also plays soprano saxophone, an instrument in which renewed interest is being shown by many saxophone players.
The music is entirely written by John Surman and his partner in the quartet, Mike Osborne.
Introduced by Ronnie Scott
(Next week Jazz Scene features the Ronnie Ross Six, led by one of the best baritone sax players in Britain.)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
