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. Some 30+ years on (now with an OBE and CBE for services to music to his name) Courtney Pine continues to break new ground with a string of highly acclaimed recordings and numerous prestigious music industry awards.

Recent years have seen him touring sell-out shows across the UK, US and Canada and mainstage performances at Bestival, Love Supreme and The London Jazz Festival with his award-winning and critically acclaimed albums House of Legends and Black Notes from the Deep featuring special guest vocalist Omar. With House of Legends and Black Notes widely regarded as two of his most vibrant and exhilarating projects in recent years, the follow-up duets project Song (The Ballad Book) a collaboration with pianist Zoe Rahman, has been heralded as one of his most intimate and reflective.

The utterly sublime Song (The Ballad Book) stripped everything right back to deliver a set of beautifully chosen ballads with Courtney playing Bass Clarinet accompanied only by Zoe on Grand Piano and saw the duo touring the project live for some of the most intimate shows of Courtney’s long and celebrated career.

Now for 2022 the duo are once again reunited for a string of live shows to celebrate and debut brand new material from Courtney’s forthcoming album Spirituality, due for release in the Autumn. This touring lineup will feature Courtney back on Bass Clarinet, Zoe on Grand Piano, and this time with the addition of a string quartet for these very special shows.
