Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club

The Music of Charlie Parker brought to you by Gilad Atzmon with Strings

Ronnie Scott's is privileged to welcome Israeli-born Gilad Atzmon performing the music of arguably the greatest alto sax player in jazz history, Charlie Parker. On the night, Gilad will be accompanied by a full string section adding depth to bird's classic compositions. This is a must-see show that has been earning rave reviews around the country!

As jazz critic Phil Johnson notes "While most jazz tribute projects are dry as dust, Gilad Atzmon's marvelous evocation of Charlie Parker's legendary 1949 Verve recording with strings somehow succeeds in conveying Bird's mercurial genius, as well as accurately re-presenting what counts as some of the most profoundly beautiful music ever made".

 "Atzmon's fluid lyricism is in full flow on songbook classics and worldly originals. But as sweet romance morphs to modernist uncertainty, the bittersweet balance and rich emotional palette equally impress." Financial Times *****

"Like the best of albums" Jazzwise ****

"Atzmon always manages to tell a story" Uncut ****

"One of the finest alto players around"  BBC Music Magazine March 2009

"Atzmon is surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz...the music here is subtle, ambiguous, often beautiful - and features a saxophonist playing deep from the heart." The Times **** March 2009

"An avid Charlie Parker disciple..." Evening Standard March 2009

"This is an outstanding album." Allaboutjazz March 2009

"is almost like a suite, with one track leading into the next" Scotland on Sunday**** March 2009

"A genuine expression of love" Scotsman**** March 2009

"The fiery Atzmon took his show from a demure chamber-music lilt to a Coltrane-inspired roar and back, and the crowd was right there through it all." Guardian Live Review ****

"Work of beauty, power and intense sonic vision" Morning Star April 2009

"Atzmon is a hell of a talent...essential listen for all contemporary music fans. Atzmon has done what all the best jazzers do and put his own stamp on his chosen material. This may be loving tribute to a mythic past but it is one with an unmistakably contemporary edge" The Jazz Man ****
