RONNIE Scott’s is one of the most famous jazz clubs in the world and any member of the resident band there would have to be at the top of their game.

Lead trumpet and vocalist Georgina Bromilow is certainly that and on Thursday, March 29th, she brings her undoubted talent to Clitheroe, in the latest coup for Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Club.

With a pedigree including tuition and development from no less than Dr Ian Darrington MBE at Wigan Jazz, Georgina’s audience appeal saw her single “Change Partners” shoot straight into the ITunes Jazz Singles Chart at number five then climb to number one, knocking none other than Nina Simone of the top spot! Enough said.

Next Thursday she will be joined by Dean Masser, a supreme saxophonist who, as a member of the Jack Parnell Quartet, recorded a live album during a week-long stint at Ronnie Scott’s.

Richard Wetherall on keys, Pete Turner on bass and Luke Flowers on drums provide high quality rhythm and support at this special event, which takes place at the club’s usual venue, The Atrium Café Bar at Clitheroe Castle, beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are £10 (£8 for members, students and under-16s half-price) and all are welcome. There is a licensed bar plus food, and good parking.
