Ruby Turner at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club
An evening of masterful and raw soul music.
With an active career since the 1980s, Ruby Turner surely sits among the old guard of British soul. While perhaps lacking the mainstream recognition of British soul singers such as Beverley Knight and Joss Stone, the Jamaican born vocalist and songwriter continues to be adored and celebrated by her fans – and never struggles to sell out a concert.
Last night’s performance at Ronnie Scott’s – the world renowned, exquisite jazz club in the heart of Soho, London – was a case in point. Having recently finished a New York residency with long-term collaborator Jools Holland, Turner has returned to Ronnie Scott’s for three sold-out concerts (19th-21st February 2017). For soul music fans who have sadly missed out on this, let this review be an encouragement to seek out any future opportunities to hear and see Ms Turner perform.
