Britain’s most celebrated jazzer follows a low-key ballads album with a collection centered on funk-oriented duets with 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.
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.
