Inspired by his father's hits (including 'Take Five', as well as years in South Africa, pianist Darius Brubek's quartet features saxophonist Dave O'Higgins, bassist Matt Ridley and drummer Wesley Gibbens.
Jazz After Dark is one of our favorite live jazz venues in London. We discovered it on one of our earlier trips to London. We were waiting in line to get into a late night performance at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club where we didn't have reservations. When we got tired of waiting we asked some of the others in line if they knew of any other late night live jazz venues where we might be able to get in. One person mentioned Jazz Afer Dark that was right around the corner from Ronnie Scott's. Jazz After Dark features live jazz almost every night never starting before 9:30 PM and often going until 2:30 AM. Most nights the admission is only about $6 but can sometimes be as high as $20 when they have better known performers. It is a very tiny intimate venue with few tables but they do have a decent food and drinks menu. Most nights you can just walk in without reservations.
