Synopsis

A celebration of the legacy of Ronnie Scott and his world-famous jazz club, Ronnie's features previously unseen and rare performances from the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Van Morrison and Chet Baker, Jimi Hendrix, Nina Simone, Roland Kirk, Sonny Rollins, Ella Fitzgerald and Miles Davis. These are accompanied with new interviews from the likes of Giles Peterson, Michael Parkinson, Val Wilmer, Chris King (son of the club's co-founder, Pete King) and Ronnie's daughter Rebecca Scott, as well as interviews with some of the most iconic figures in music; Quincy Jones, Georgie Fame and Sonny Rollins, amongst others. The film explores the club's 60-year history and shines a light on the uncompromising men and women who built it and who took to its stage.

Ronnie's is an exceptional story about one of London's greatest ever institutions - one of the last remaining vestiges of old, bohemian Soho. Chronicling an incredible journey through late 50s and early 60s Soho, the film is not just for jazz fans; it also tells the extraordinary story of how two working-class Londoners (Scott and co founder Pete King) contributed to the cultural life of a great city, making it a vital social document and a film for any self-respecting music fan.
