Details

Last at the club in 2015 this band regularly brings huge audiences to their performances. Terrific playing as tight as you’d wish and a host of soloists to satisfy the jazz lover beyond their taste for volume. Membership is a fluid matter but Ronnie has known so many top musicians over so many years that he has an immense pool to call upon. His experience over 5 decades as a performer and educator has gained him respect of his and later generations and he is indefatigable in his composing and arranging which continues unabated.

“So the full-power, musical muscle pieces had their complement in quieter numbers—and for anyone unaccustomed to hearing a live big band at this level, the delicacy and precision of both the arrangements and the playing will have been a revelation." Jim Whitman (Jazz Blog) history
