No musician more embodies the dramatic transformation in the British jazz scene over the past 20 years than Courtney Pine CBE.
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.
House of Legends sees Courtney return to the instrument he is best known for – the saxophone – and features his soprano sax exclusively for the first time.
Deeply steeped in the traditions of the Caribbean, this very personal project 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 view point.
Back by popular demand, expect an exhilarating mix of meringue, ska, mento and calypso as played through the lens (saxophone) of a UK-born artist with strong, proud Afro-Caribbean roots.
