Jazz fans across the world are mourning the death of Ronnie Scott, Britain's best-known jazz impresario.

Jimmy Parsons, who has worked at Ronnie Scott's club in Frith Street, London, for 20 years, said yesterday that "hundreds" of telephone calls and faxes from friends and fans had arrived. Scott, 69, died suddenly on Monday.
