Courtney Pine - Journey to the Urge Within...Revisited.Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, W1D 4HT , [Venue Details]
Journey to the Urge Within was the debut album by UK saxophonist Courtney Pine. It was released on the Verve label in 1986.
Allmusic awarded the album with 4 stars.
Its review by Scott Yanow states: "This early Courtney Pine recording (the tenor saxophonist was 22 at the time) features some of the most promising black English jazz musicians of the time, including Pine (who also plays some bass clarinet and soprano), singer Cleveland Watkiss (who often is reminiscent of Bobby McFerrin), vibraphonist Orphy Robinson, and pianist Julian Joseph."
The album went on to reach #39 in the UK Albums Chart and earned a silver disc (over 250,000 copies sold), which was unprecedented at the time for a British jazz recording.
