      The Jazz Scurriers - Peter Long & Simon Spillett

      Formed especially for the festivities surrounding the 60th anniversary of Ronnie Scott’s, the Jazz Scurriers hark back to the heady days of the Jazz Couriers quintet co-led by Ronnie and the great Tubby Hayes.

      In the time-honoured way you can expect plenty of up tempo tenor jousting, bell notes bouncing from wall to wall and cascades of bebop quavers coruscating the continuum!

      Award winning repertory bandleader Peter Long and custodian of the Hayes legacy Simon Spillett will go head to head over the old Couriers classics, with driving virtuosic rhythmic support. Expect such favourites as the original arrangements of ‘Cheek To Cheek’, ‘Love Walked In’ and ‘The Serpent’, as well as some of Tubby’s later standards, all linked together with stories and comments from the two front men. Groovy!

      Simon Spillett & Peter Long – tenor sax, James Pearson - piano, Tim Thornton – double bass, Ed Richardson - drums

      Cost: From £0 to £19
