Courtney Pine + Omar: Black Notes from the Deep + Better Days DJ on Saturday 8th December 2018

TICKETS ON SALE 9AM 4TH MAY.

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 80’s he 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 and

since then he’s had numerous BBC Jazz Awards, MOBO’s, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and remained at the forefront of UK jazz, with a contemporary jazz style that integrates modern British sounds like drum n bass and UK garage alongside soul, hip-hop and deep rooted influences from across the Caribbean.

With ‘Black Notes from the Deep’ (Freestyle Records) he returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and features the vocal talents of UK soul star Omar, whose 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.
