Courtney Pine featuring OMAR
Multi-instrumentalist Courtney Pine CBE is a British born jazz giant.

“In a Class of His Own” The Times

“Courtney Pine was one hailed as the saviour of British Jazz...he still is” The Independent

“Nothing short of breath-taking” The Telegraph

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

He has remained at the forefront of the UK jazz scene, integrating 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, 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 sound.

He has since earned widespread critical acclaim and collaborated 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.
