COURTNEY PINE with Zoe Rahman
“Nothing short of breathtaking” The Telegraph
Courtney Pine’s latest direction takes a step away from his familiar small band setting to create a programme evening of favourite ballads that range far and wide, from Duke Ellington to Chaka Khan.
Concentrating on the richly resonant tones of his bass clarinet, and displaying his ability to create a lyrical subtlety with out ever losing his natural ebullience, he is accompanied by Mercury nominee and MOBO Award-winning pianist Zoe Rahman, who has firmly established herself as one of the brightest stars on the contemporary jazz scene.
A vibrant and highly individual pianist/composer, her style is deeply rooted in jazz whilst reflecting a classical background and her British/Bengali heritage.
‘A beautiful and impressive piece of work from two of our finest players’ The Observer
