Courtney Pine presents SONG

(The Ballad Book)

This event has passed.

The Independent “ Courtney Pine was once hailed as British jazz’s saviour….he still is”
The Telegraph “Nothing short of breathtaking”
The Times “In a Class of His Own”

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 and some 20 plus years on (now with an OBE and CBE for services to music) Courtney Pine continues to break new ground with a string of highly acclaimed recordings and numerous prestigious Industry awards. In April 2014 he joined Herbie Hancock and a dazzling line-up of Jazz all-stars for UNESCO’S globally televised concert in Osaka to celebrate International Jazz Day and his name regularly appears on the list of Most Influential Black Britons.

2014/2015 saw 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 critically acclaimed 15th studio album House of Legends.

For his 16th studio album to date, he has stripped everything right back for some of the most intimate shows of his long and celebrated career as he takes to the stage playing bass clarinet accompanied only by a Pianist. Having recorded the album with acclaimed pianist Zoe Rahman he continues to tour the show with her.


MOJO “Spellbinding, shimmers serenely with a breath taking beauty”
JAZZWISE – 4 STARS “If House of Legends was the most danceable album Courtney Pine has ever produced, this successor to it is the most reflective and beautiful. Masterly”
FINANCIAL TIMES 4 STARS “Great songs, intimate solos and Courtney Pine and Zoe Rahman sounding tender and true”
THE GUARDIAN 4 STARS “this duo set is a revelation… a celebration of timeless ballads”
