RONNIE LAWS + CHIP WICKHAM
The brother of classically trained flautist Hubert and jazz singer Eloise, Texan saxophonist Ronnie Laws first learned his trade under the tutelage of such legendary talents as The Jazz Crusaders and Hugh Masakela in LA.
He was a member of the 70’s much-revered soul group Earth Wind and Fire, where he played tenor and soprano sax for a two-year stint, before finally venturing out to pursue a solo career.
Opening the show will be flautist and saxophonist Chip Wickham. Lauded by Gilles Peterson for his excellent LP La Sombra released in 2017, Chip is the latest name to emerge from Manchester’s fertile jazz scene.
Presented by The Jazz Cafe & The Columbo Group.
This is a 18+ event.
