Steve Rubie awarded The Musicians’ Company’s Jazz Lifetime Achievement Award 2019

The Musicians’ Company has announced the award of its Jazz Lifetime Achievement Award for 2019 to flautist and saxophonist Steve Rubie. Rubie runs the famous 606 Club in Chelsea, which he has developed into one of the most active and significant jazz venues in the UK over the last 30 years. Although the ‘6’ is a key jazz venue, Rubie emphasises that the club hosts a wider programme of music. There is a long-standing policy of booking and promoting UK-based musicians (with occasional exceptions), including an ongoing relationship with the Royal Academy of Music.
