Early on this year one of our favorite record labels Freestyle Records signed Courtney Pine.  We support Greg Boraman the A&R man at Freestlye Records as we feel this is a great combination.

When you was to listen Courtney Pine music you will find that this British self-taught jazz musician who’s career spans over 30 years.  Courtney Pine is a talented saxophonist that can also play flute, clarinet, bass clarinet and keys, his style bring together jazz that integrates reggae, Caribbean sounds, hip-hop.   In his career he has revived awards in 1996 & 1997 MOBO for best jazz act; 1999 People’s Choice best British jazz act for blues and soul; 2000 OBE and  CBE in 2009 New Year Honours for services to jazz music.  In the 1980’s he was key to foundering the all black British band Jazz Warriors.

Courtney Pine forthcoming release for Freestyle Records “Black Notes From The Deep” features label mate Omar out in early Summer 2017.  This project bring together two heavy weights in jazz and soul.  The studio experience of blending their influences into the mixing pot for this album I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall.
