Few have done more to popularize British jazz than Courtney Pine. Since bursting onto the scene 30 years ago, he's delivered a swathe of fine albums, many of which have crossed over into the mainstream. His latest full-length excursion, Black Notes From The Deep, has the potential to be big, too. As well as including a range of traditionalist jazz compositions - most of which are laidback and put Pine's mazy sax solos front and centre - the album boasts fusion tracks inspired by hip-hop and broken beat. Old friend and long-serving British soul man Omar makes a number of guest appearances, with the snappy, beautiful and breakbeat-driven cover of Herbie Hancock's "Butterfly" standing out.
