Courtney Pine (Monday)
Quite possibly the most influential man in British Jazz - supreme saxophonist, the legend that is COURTNEY PINE returns to Hideaway for two very special shows.
'Courtney Pine was once hailed as British jazz’s saviour….he still is' - The Independent
'Nothing short of breathtaking' - The Telegraph
'In a Class of His Own' - The Times
A founding member of the iconic Jazz Warriors, Courtney Pine exploded onto the British jazz scene in the 80’s. He was one of the first black British jazz artists to make their own indelible mark on the industry when his first album charted and now some 20 plus years on (with an OBE and CBE for services to music to his name) 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 transcending the traditional limits imposed on musicians.
The last eighteen months has seen 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.
