No musician more embodies the dramatic transformation in the British Jazz scene over the past twenty years than Albany favourite Courtney Pine.

His 15th studio album, House of Legends, sees Courtney return to the instrument for which he is best known – the saxophone – and features his soprano sax exclusively for the first time. Deeply steeped in the traditions of the Caribbean, the music brings together performers from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe for vibrant exchanges that tell tales of life from a truly multi-cultural view point.
