COURTNEY PINE presents BLACK NOTES FROM THE DEEP featuring special guest vocalist Omar

For his latest project, due for release on Freestyle Records in Spring 2017, Courtney returns to the tenor saxophone for the first time in a decade and features the vocal talents of UK soul star Omar, whose 1992 hit single “There’s Nothing Like This” established a truly unique andinstantly recognisable “signature” sound that has since earned him widespread critical acclaim and seen him collaborate with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson and Angie Stone.  This very special project brings together two of the UK’s finest jazz and soul talents composing, recording and performing new original material together for the first time as well as a killer cover of Herbie Hancock’s “Butterfly”.
