No musician more embodies the dramatic transformation in the British Jazz scene over the past twenty years than Albany favourite Courtney Pine.
'One of Britain's most celebrated and influential jazz artists'
The Independent on Courtney Pine
His 15th studio album, House of Legends, sees Courtney return to the instrument for which he is best known - the saxophone - and features his soprano sax exclusively for the first time. Deeply steeped in the traditions of the Caribbean, the music brings together performers from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe for vibrant exchanges that tell tales of life from a truly multi-cultural view point.
Expect an exhilarating mix of Merengue, Ska, Mento and Calypso as played through the lens of a UK born artist with strong, proud Afro-Caribbean roots.
Listen to Courtney Pine performing Kingstonian Swing, from House of Legends.
