Scott Henderson's Tribal Tech Announce First Ever Ronnie Scotts Shows

On the 15th and 16th of July, virtuoso jazz fusion and blues guitarist Scott Henderson brings his band Tribal Tech to Ronnie Scott's for the first time. With his trademark beautiful tone and striking ability to blend blues, rock, funk and jazz, he formed his own groundbreaking trio and performed as sideman to jazz greats such as Joe Zawinul.  Yet it is with his impressive work as co-leader of Tribal Tech, one of the most highly-regarded fusion bands of the 1990s, that he is best known.

Originally formed in 1984 with bass player Gary Willis, the band produced nine albums positioning Henderson and Willis among the most acclaimed instrumentalists in contemporary jazz, with each frequently topping music magazine best-of lists. In 1991 Henderson was namedNo 1 Jazz Guitarist'by Guitar World magazine, and was voted best jazz guitarist in Guitar Player magazine's Annual Reader's Poll the following year.

 

 

In 1995 Tribal Tech went on hiatus while band members pursued solo projects, finally reuniting four years later then dissolving following 2000's Rocket Science. 

For their date at Ronnie Scott's Scott Henderson, Gary Willis, Scott Kinsey and Kirk Covington present their new album 'X'.  Once again throwing convention out the window, the band entered the studio with each member bringing musical sketches to the table in favour of a set list of heavy arrangements. They turned on the tape machines and bravely set out to play together as a unit, producing perhaps the most phenomenal recording of their impressive 25+ year history as a band. 

 

Doors 6pm

Tickets £30 - £45
