Courtney Pine ft. Omar // Preston Jazz & Improvisation Festival on Sunday 10th June 2018
In a fitting finale to the festival, we’re proud to welcome Courtney Pine as our headline act.
Standing out as a true trailblazer in the British Jazz community, Courtney embodies the dramatic transformation of UK Jazz over the past three decades. His revolutionary, multi-instrument talent has inspired a new generation of musicians to broaden their own styles, bringing Jazz to wider and more diverse audiences.
Winner of a Mercury Music Prize and Gold Badge Award, and now honoured with an OBE and CBE for services to music, with 16 studio albums to his credit, Courtney continues to tour with his award winning band, delighting audiences around the globe.
His Black Notes from the Deep was released to critical acclaim in 2017, featuring guest vocals from Omar - himself known for his unique voice, multi-instrumental talent and production skills.
Support comes from Leeds College of Music alumni J. Frisco – underlining the festival’s ambition to promote rising young talent. Championed by the pioneering Jazz North Introduces, this all female free experimental trio includes Jemma Fresse on keyboards, saxophonist Lara Jones and guitarist Megan Roe.
