Play it again, Ron.

Ronnie's: “Official Trailer” - 2 mins

With the night-time economy still paralysed by the coronavirus pandemic, this toe-tapping trailer for 'Ronnie’s' hits home harder than expected. Directed by Ollie Murray, the film offers an insight into Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in Soho - a night spot graced by the likes of Miles Davis, Nina Simone, and Curtis Mayfield over the years.

Shots of central London in full flow are almost overwhelming, as are glimpses of the club at maximum capacity. However, it's the roll call of talent that matters most, as Murray whets the jazz-loving viewer's appetite with vibrant footage of Scott and company through the decades. 2020 may be a bum note, but this looks to provide some comfort.

Director: Ollie Murray
