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”.

Dates: : 8th & 9th of February
