“In a class of his own” ~ The Times
“Nothing short of breathtaking” ~ The Telegraph
Following his phenomenal sell-out concert in April 2016, legendary British jazz saxophonist Courtney Pine CBE returns to Ropetackle with his incredible House Of Legends show – an exhilarating evening of calypso, ska and Afro-Caribbean joy.
No musician more embodies the dramatic transformation in British jazz over the past twenty years than Courtney Pine. The ground breaking multi-instrumentalist has led a generation of exciting and innovative players who have broadened their styles to take jazz out to a wider audience.
In the 80s he was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene when his debut album charted in the Top 40, and some 20 years on he continues to break new ground with a string of highly acclaimed recordings and relentless touring.
Steeped in the traditions of the Caribbean, this House Of Legends show sees Courtney on top form, bringing together musicians from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe for vibrant exchanges that tell tales of life from a truly multi-cultural point of view.
Don’t miss this unforgettable evening of vibrant, powerful music from one of the true greats of British jazz.
