Courtney Pine ‘Black Notes from the Deep’ feat Omar

Multi-instrumentalist Courtney Pine is a British-born jazz giant. A pioneer of the British black community, he was the first black British jazz artist to make a serious mark on the jazz scene in the 1980’s. He defined the era and opened the door for many more to follow. With his trailblazing, contemporary style that integrates modern British sounds such as drum n bass, UK garage, soul, hip-hop and his deep rooted influences from across the Caribbean, Pine has remained at the forefront of UK jazz, collecting a plethora of awards along the way – BBC Jazz Awards, MOBO’s, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and a CBE. For this very special show, Pine performs new, original music from his forthcoming recording, ‘Black Notes From The Deep’ that sees him to return to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and features UK supreme soul vocalist Omar. This show will be, in the words of the Telegraph, “nothing short of breath-taking” – it doesn’t get much better than this.
Line-Up: Courtney Pine (tenor saxophone/EWI), Robert Mitchell (piano/organ), Robert Fordjour (drums), Vidal Montgomery (bass) + Omar (vocals)
