Ronnie Scott’s Artistic Director with the RTÉ CO

The Guardian commented of the Ronnie Scott’s house trio led by James Pearson: ‘How they sustain such full-on brilliance night after night is a mystery…’ On Wednesday 17 October at the NCH, we get to hear this full-on brilliance with the full RTÉ Concert Orchestra, conducted by Roderick Dunk. James Pearson, Artistic Director of Ronnie Scott’s, with Matt Skelton on drums and Jeremy Brown on bass join us for a breath-taking tribute to 100 years of jazz piano greats.

Irving Berlin, Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, a Fats Waller medley and George Gershwin medley, Erroll Garner, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea – all these giants of jazz and more.
