NEW LOOK RONNIE SCOTT’S RE-OPENS WITH STUNNING SUMMER LINE-UP
On Monday 26th June 2006, legendary Soho jazz venue Ronnie Scott’s re-opens its doors after three months of extensive refurbishment. Although the club has been subtly updated courtesy of renowned Parisian designer Jacques Garcia and has a great new menu, it will still maintain its rich tradition of bringing the world's finest jazz musicians to the capital. Artistic Director Leo Green has booked some of the great names in the jazz world to perform at Ronnie Scott’s. The opening night sees the return of old favourite Monty Alexander with his jazz trio. Among those scheduled to appear over the summer are David Sanborn, one of the world’s most influential saxophonists, ex-Brand New Heavies vocalist Carleen Anderson, Grammy Award winner Chris Botti, keyboard star Ramsey Lewis, the prolific composer Chick Corea and Wynton Marsalis, widely acknowledged as the most accomplished and acclaimed jazz artist and composer of his generation. Ticket prices range from �25 to �45. Complementing this unrivalled line up is Ronnie Scott’s new food and drink offering. Served between 6pm and 9.30pm, the Pre Show Menu costs just �23 per head and will combine high quality traditional English fare with such delicacies as grilled aubergines with tomato and crispy roast duck breast with parsnip puree. After 9.30pm guests will be able to choose from a more informal à la carte menu. An extended and improved drinks and wine list will also be available. Tickets are available now, please call the box office (020 7439 0747) or log on to the refurbished website (www.ronniescotts.co.uk) which goes live the week of Monday 15th May.
