Jazz Scene at the Ronnie Scott Club

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.)

Jazz Scene

at the Ronnie Scott Club
A series of weekly programmes featuring some of Britain's top jazz artists at Europe's No 1 Jazz Club
Tonight
Alex Welsh and his Band
Alex Welsh (trumpet-cornet), Roy Williams (trombone), Al Gay, Johnny Barnes (saxophones and clarinets), Fred Hunt (piano), Harvey Weston (bass), Jim Douglas (guitar), Lennie Hastings (drums)
The band has been in existence since 1954 with remarkably few changes of personnel. It has built an enormous reputation accompanying visiting American jazz musicians, and last year Alex and the band were invited to the Newport Jazz Festival in America where they earned rave notices from the critics.
'A band unlike anything we have in the us today - call it mainstream if you will - to me it's jazz in the best sense of the word' (Dan Morgenstern editor, Downbeat magazine)
'One of the most perfectly realised jazz selections that this listener has heard at Newport - or for that matter anywhere!' (John S. Wilson, New York Times)

Jazz Scene

at the Ronnie Scott Club
A weekly series featuring some of Britain's top jazz artists at Europe's No 1 Jazz Club
Tonight: Salena Jones with The Guitar Sound
Judd Proctor (guitar), George Kisch (guitar), Martin Kershaw (guitar), Ike Isaacs (guitar), David Snell (harp), Alan Branscombe (vibes), Spike Heatley (bass), John Marshall (drums), Peter Ahearne (Latin percussion)

It is appropriate that Salena Jones features in this programme tonight, as it was here at the Ronnie Scott Club that she first drew the attention of the critics which subsequently established her as one of Europe's leading jazz singers.
Accompanying her tonight is a unique musical combination of guitars, harp, and percussion specially written for this programme by her musical director, Keith Mansfield. Incidentally, it is interesting to note that Salena Jones hails from Newport News, Virginia, the birthplace of two other great jazz singers, Ella Fitzgerald and Pearl Bailey.

Tonight
The Alan Skidmore Quintet
Alan Skidmore (tenor saxophone), Kenny Wheeler (trumpet/flugel horn), John Taylor (piano), Harry Miller (bass), Tony Oxley (drums)
Alan Skidmore is the son of one of the original post-war jazz musicians who made their mark in groups like those of John Dankworth and Humphrey Lyttelton , and has followed very much in his father's footsteps in attaining a reputation as a driving, forceful tenor saxophone player, although his style is, to say the least, updated. This year he and his Quintet were placed first in the International Jazz Festival held annually in Montreux, Switzerland. His partner in the front line is a brilliant trumpet and flugel horn player, Kenny Wheeler, a musician's musician.

Jazz Scene

at The Ronnie Scott Club
Presenting each week some of the international jazz stars recorded at Europe's Top Jazz Club.

Tonight Ronnie Scott introduces The Albert Nicholas Quartet, Albert King and his Blues Band, The Miles Davis Quintet, Sarah Vaughan and her Trio

If jazz had a formal baptism it was in New Orleans, and it was there that Albert Nicholas, a contemporary of Louis Armstrong, first played clarinet alongside people like King Oliver, Kid Ory and Buddy Petit. Its origins go back deeper, and Albert King is a self-taught blues guitarist who plays the blues as they were meant to be played. Jazz matured and became sophisticated with singers like Sarah Vaughan, and it became intellectual and even introverted with Miles Davis.

Jazz Scene at The Ronnie Scott Club

Presenting each week some of the international jazz stars recorded at Europe's Number One Jazz Club.

Tonight Ronnie Scott introduces: The Charlie Shavers Quartet, The Grant Green Trio, Champion Jack Dupree, Buddy Rich and his Orchestra
Charlie Shavers is one of the great figures of the forties and fifties. He played trumpet with the John Kirby Sextet, then joined Dorsey for four years, ran a sextet with Terry Gibbs and Louis Bellson, and in 1953 joined Norman Granz's Jazz at the Phil, playing in London at the legendary JATP Concert that brought live American jazz to England for the first time in 20 years.

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.
