RONNIE’S chronicles the life of saxophonist Ronnie Scott, a poor Jewish
kid who grew up in 1940s East End, London who became owner of the
eponymous night club. Musical greats spanning decades played at
Ronnie’s including Dizzy Gillespie, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles
Davis, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Chet Baker, and
Jimi Hendrix, who played there the night of his death. Glorious clips bring
to life this legendary jazz club and its charming yet tormented owner.
