Courtney Pine & Zoe Rahman – Song (The Ballad Book)

Tuesday 26 October 2021

In the 1980s he was one of the first black British jazz artists to make a serious mark on the jazz scene when his first album charted.


Some 30 plus years on (now with an OBE and CBE for services to music), Courtney Pine continues to break new ground with a string of highly acclaimed recordings and numerous prestigious Industry awards.

For this gig he has stripped everything right back for some of the most intimate shows of his long and celebrated career as he takes to the stage playing bass clarinet accompanied only by fellow Mercury nominee and MOBO Award winning Pianist, Zoe Rahman. Described in The Observer as “a remarkable pianist by any standard”, Zoe Rahman has firmly established herself as one of the brightest stars on the contemporary jazz scene.

“This is beautiful impressive work by two of our finest players” – The Observer
