About Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club
Ronnie Scott's is one of the most famous Jazz venues in London. It is also one of the oldest in the world having opened in 1959, during which it has featured most of the legendary and popular names in modern jazz and jazz fusion. It was the site of Jimi Hendrix's last live performance.The club officially reopened on Monday 26th June 2006, after 3 months of refurbishment. In 2009 Ronnie Scott's was named by the Brecon Jazz Festival as one of the top 3 venues which had made the most important contributions to jazz music in the United Kingdom.
Once one of the most visible and winning jazz vibraphonists of the 1960s, from an R&B bandleader in the 1970s and '80s, Roy Ayers' reputation s now that of one of the prophets of acid jazz, a man decades ahead of his time.
Perhaps acid jazz would have emerged even if Roy Ayers had
never existed, but it certainly would have sounded different. Scores of DJs,
hip-hoppers, acid jazzers, and others have incorporated samples of music
created by Ayers into their own work, making his sound an integral part of
these emerging musical forms. His status as the godfather of acid jazz, or jazz
funk, or whichever label you prefer, represents a second life in the career of
vibraphonist and composer Ayers, who first rocked American dance floors in the
1970s with such anthems as "Everybody Loves the Sunshine" and
"Freaky Deaky." Twenty years later, Ayers is as ubiquitous in the
dance clubs as he ever was.
