This special project, Black Notes from the Deep, brings together two of the UK’s finest jazz and soul talents. British jazz giant and multiple MOBO winner Courtney Pine returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and is joined by UK soul star Omar who has previously collaborated with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Erykah Badu.
In the 80’s, Courtney Pine 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. 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 style that integrates modern British sounds alongside soul, hip-hop and deep rooted influences from across the Caribbean.
Support comes from 18-year old French guitar prodigy and winner of the LetterOne Rising Stars Jazz Award, Tom Ibarra, who has collaborated with Marcus Miller at the age of just 16.
