I attended the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club 60th Anniversary event and bumped into Pee Wee Ellis. I first met him in 1987 whilst working as a breakfast waitress in Aberystwyth’s Sea Bank Hotel. He was so kind and encouraged me to follow my passion: Music.
Still buzzing from the Van Morrison interview! Spent nearly an hour travelling through this legendary musician’s mind. Great insights on his songs and recordings, and the musicians that made them. Listen in on BBC World Service on Saturday 9th February.
