Courtney Pine Jazz Warriors: Afropeans

Courtney Pine Jazz Warriors: Afropeans
LONDON  •  Theatre Royal Stratford East  •  Ongoing

In October 2007, Courtney Pine led a freshly minted Jazz Warriors in the Afropeans project - a concert and award-winning album to mark the Bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade act in the UK. Now, this y ensemble returns to tour the UK, with a line-up that crosses generations of leading UK jazz soloists:  Courtney Pine (saxophone & clarinet) Chris Storr, Colin Graham, Mark Crown (trumpets), Trevor Edwards (trombone), Jason Yarde, Shabaka Hutchins (reeds), Omar Puente (violin), Ayanna Witter-Johnson (cello, voice), Alex Wilson (piano), Samuel Dubois (steel pan), Darren Taylor (bass), Robert Fordjour (percussion), Donald Gamble (percussion).

Afropeans Jazz Warriors picks up where the original Jazz Warriors left off - this seminal big band, formed in the 80s to celebrate the rich heritage of Afro-Caribbean jazz that contributed to the UK jazz scene since the 50s, is re-invented for the 21st century.
