Courtney Pine and Darren Taylor at The Jazz Cafe

Last Wednesday (28th Feb 2007), I was placed on the guest list of top jazz saxophonist Courtney Pine’s gig at the Jazz Cafe, Camden, London, by my good friend bassist Darren Taylor.

What a phenomenal gig! A prime example of hours and hours of determination packed into two hours of passionate delivery.

Check out this video of a gig that Courtney, Darren and the band played at Falmouth Princess Pavillion. Darren’s on the double bass behind Courtney – you can see that he’s having a wiked time!

On the night, Courtney also played a sax tribute to Lynden David Hall – here’s the late Lynden’s very own Sexy Cinderella:
