Soho After Dark is a vivid snapshot of a time, now long gone, when London’s vibrant Soho square mile almost rivalled New York’s 52nd Street and L.A.’s Central Avenue in presenting the finest modern jazz to be enjoyed anywhere outside of the USA.

Venues such as The Fabulous Flamingo, the (original) Marquee Club, Ronnie Scott’s, The 100 Club, Studio 51,Club Eleven, Club Dankworth, The Florida, The Downbeat, Club Basie, The Establishment all presented the very best local talent of the stature of Ronnie Scott, Tubby Hayes, Johnny Dankworth, Joe Harriott, Victor Feldman, Tony Kinsey, Ronnie Ross, Dizzy Reece, Jimmy Deuchar, Stan Tracey, Don Rendell, Tommy Whittle and dozens of others.

Visiting American jazz stars frequently commented on the high standard of the local musicianship they encountered. This was by no means a patronizing gesture to ingratiate themselves with the locals, but genuine endorsements.Thiswent as far asDuke Ellington (Tubby Hayes), Lionel Hampton (Jimmy Deuchar) and Stan Kenton (Harry Klein, Tommy Whittle, Don Rendell) hiring local stars to dep for sick or wayward sidemen. In 1959, Woody Herman set a precedent when he assembled a highly impressive Anglo-American Herd that included many local heroes. In the same year, The Modern Jazz Quartet toured the UK with Joe Harriott and Ronnie Ross as special guests.

Stylistically, the music performed on Soho After Dark reveals influences that encompass East Coast Hard Bop, Cu-Bop and West Coast Cool but, importantly, all are delivered in a local accent.
