Stanley Clarke at Ronnie Scotts

Ronnie Scotts - London 2004

Our first visit to Ronnie Scotts in London was to see Stanley Clarke (virtuoso electric and acoustic bass player) and though I had seen him before back in New Zealand this was a first for Kath.

A small and intimate club is Ronnie's, you are close to the stage and can see and hear everything. Stanley was on fine form and his band were very tight. Two sets were the evenings fare and we were not disappointed, he showcased music from his vast back catalogue and amazed everyone with what he can do with various bass guitars. Warm responses from him for our applause and he talked back to the crowd showing good stage presence.

At the end we had to say that it was excellent value and we must return.
