Event details

Courtney Pine presents Black Notes from the Deep, featuring special guest vocalist Omar

Multi instrumentalist, Courtney Pine CBE, is a British born Jazz giant

In the 80s, Courtney was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene, when his first album charted the top 40. Since then, he’s had numerous BBC Jazz Awards, MOBOs, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and remained at the forefront of UK jazz.

His contemporary jazz style integrates modern British sounds like drum 'n' bass and UK garage, alongside soul, hip-hop and deep rooted influences from across the Caribbean.

For his latest project, Black Notes from the Deep, he returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade, and features the vocal talents of UK soul star Omar. Omar's 1992 hit single, 'There’s Nothing Like This', established a truly unique and instantly recognisable 'signature' sound that has since earned him widespread critical acclaim and seen him collaborate with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson and Angie Stone.

This very special project brings together two of the UK’s finest jazz and soul talents composing, recording and performing new original material together for the first time.
