Dave Ohm is in residency  this week at Ronnie Scott’s Club. Georgia Mancio writes:
Drummer, bandleader and producer Dave Ohm has long been an unsung hero of the British jazz scene; a crime that seems to befall many other very fine players of the same instrument. For a change the billing is reversed as he takes up residence at Ronnie Scott’s 16 -20 Jan to lead five different groups in the support slot opposite Carmen Lundy and James Taylor Quartet.

His recent work includes Gregory Porter, Karin Krog, Rebecca Parris, Dena DeRose, Wess Anderson and Benny Golson but his association with Ronnie Scott’s Club goes back over 15 years where he has performed many times with Claire Martin, Deborah Brown, Ian Shaw, Peter King and the Ronnie Scott’s Allstars.

A creative and musical drummer with an almost uncanny intuition, Ohm is at once a “powerhouse” (Time Out) and subtle storyteller. You can hear the Art Blakey and Elvin Jones dynamism, you will also recognise the crisp brushwork of John Poole and yet always unmistakeably his own sonic stamp.

His collaborators over the week will include: Nigel Hitchcock, Paul Stacey and Laurence Cottle (18 Jan); Ben Castle, Mark Edwards and Arnie Somogyi (17 Jan); Georgia Mancio, Nikki Iles and Julie Walkington (20 Jan) as well as some very special suprise guests. Who can resist?
