Don't miss the re-airing of this old Omnibus documentary on Ronnie Scott's on the BBC iPlayer at the moment. Fascinating stuff, especially to see Ella and Dizzy singing at Ronnie's!
Here's the write-up on the programme:
Now Ronnie Scott's is known throughout the world as the heartbeat of British jazz. In this tribute, Omnibus talks to some of Ronnie's greatest admirers including Mel Brooks, the Rt Hon Kenneth Clarke MP and writer Alan Plater, and features rare archive footage of some of the club's historic performances by Zoot Sims, Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie and Ella Fitzgerald.
