Digging the vintage sound of Dakota Staton and The Late, Late Show (Capitol, 1957) as story soundtrack as news reaches us that next week sees the return live of another round of the Late, Late Show at Ronnie Scott's, the venue has announced with Wednesday the first night back since the Pandemic ahead of the club's 62nd birthday later in October begun in what's now Chinatown a year-and-a-half after Staton's bluesy swinger was released. Doors open each evening at 11pm and run until 3am in the wee small hours. Alto sax ace Rachael Cohen opens proceedings on the first night with trumpeter Mark Kavuma also coming up as host.

Mark was excellent heard last week at his Ninety One Living Room residency on Brick Lane. Expect Yolanda Charles, The Drawtones and Basement Jaxx vocalist Vula Malinga in the house at the Late. It's £12 in. Ronnie’s general manager Fred Nash says: “With the relaunch we want to welcome everyone in. We’ve kept the ticket prices low, with a list of house cocktails, beer and wine under a tenner – rivalling most bars in town. Really, we just want people to celebrate being able to revel in some amazing music, in good company at one of the best spots in town.”

''Dreams broken in two can be made like new'': No pianist since Ralph Sharon and Bill Evans understands Tony Bennett as well as Bill Charlap. You will know that if you appreciated 2015's The Silver Lining and we are looking at a silver lining lifting us higher with news that will cheer fans of the piano trio as an entity let alone Charlap that Street of Dreams is imminent, Charlap with his hugely seasoned trio of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, both with Charlap on The Silver Lining.

Introducing next month's release is Charlap's elegantly swinging version of Brubeck's paean to Duke Ellington 'The Duke' which is the album's opener.

Savour the other titles: Day Dream, You’re All The World To Me, I’ll Know (from Guys and Dolls), Your Host, Out Of Nowhere, What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life? And then last but of course not least there's the Victor Young and Samuel M. Lewis song 'Street Of Dreams' the title track that completes the album to be issued by the greatest jazz label of all, Blue Note, as Charlap comes home once again.

'Street of Dreams' was first recorded by Russ Columbo and His Orchestra and released in 1932 seven years before Blue Note started in the record business by putting out boogie-woogie. Bing Crosby sang the song, the lyrics of which luminously ring out to coo ''Dreams broken in two can be made like new'' in 1933, Lee Wiley in the 1940s, Jimmy Scott, Peggy Lee and Johnny Mathis in the 50s and in a 1961 release, yes, the man himself, Tony Bennett on Tony Sings For Two.
