Courtney Pine Band featuring Omar

We're delighted to welcome multi-instrumentalist Courtney Pine CBE back to Hull with a brand new project.

Courtney's 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 made the top 40. Since then he’s had numerous BBC Jazz Awards, MOBO’s, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and has remained at the forefront of UK jazz.

For his latest project, Black Notes From the Deep, he returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in 10 years and collaborates with UK soul star Omar. His 1992 hit single There’s Nothing Like This established a truly unique and instantly recognisable sound that's earned him widespread critical acclaim and seen him collaborate with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson and Angie Stone. 

Join us for a very special evening that sees two of the UK's leading jazz and soul talents performing original material together for the first time.
