Courtney Pine Biography - World Class Jazzman
in London with a Jamaican heritage, this acclaimed star was inspired to start playing music by the sounds of legends like
Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. After learning how to play the sax and the clarinet, he began to perform live as a teenager
alongside the bop band Dwarf Steps before touring with more well-known reggae outfits like General Saint. He has since worked
with countless jazz music luminaries including the Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts and Elvis Jones.
His first ever
solo album Journey to the Urge Within flew into the UK Top 40 in 1986 and has become one of the most popular jazz albums
of all time. His subsequent records have performed just as well and were inspired by a wide range of musical and cultural
influences. In his eclectic 2011 album Europa, the heralded performer stripped back to a purist jazz sound and told
the story of his European travels, which have taken him everywhere from Budapest to Turkey. His live shows are often highly
interactive and non-traditional in every sense, so buy Courtney Pine tickets now for a music experience you will never forget.
