In 1959 Ronnie Scott and Pete King opened their first club in Gerrard Street, London W1, which moved to nearby Frith Street in 1965. Now, 60 years on, the Club is celebrating 60 years of great jazz. The National Jazz Archive joins the anniversary celebrations with images of some of the UK and US musicians who have graced the Club with their presence.
Further, the Archive can give you the opportunity to own your own printed and framed copy of the images from our partners, Heritage Images. With a choice of over 250 amazing photographs, you can choose your favourite here.
The four images featured below, all by photographer Brian O’Connor, are (L to R) Joe Pass in the 1970s, the wonderful Bobby Wellins in 2003, the man who brought us so many young stars, Art Blakey in the 1970s, and Ronnie himself in 1992.
The National Jazz Archive’s heritage black and white images can be ordered in a range of Wall Art and Photo Gift options, including Framed Prints, Posters, Canvas Prints, Jigsaw Puzzles and other Photo Gifts – all professionally made and delivered to your door quickly and securely.
