Courtney Pine: Isle of Wight is a beautiful area

Jazz musician Courtney Pine has described the Isle of Wight as a beautiful area.

The star, who is performing on the Isle of Wight later this month, stated that he was really looking forward to his show on the island.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, he said: "Jazz has survived this long for a reason - come and find out why."

He will be performing at Ventnor Botanic Garden on May 22nd 2010 as part of this year's Jazz on the Meadow, which also features shows from Benedict Branca, Omar Puente and US singer Keri Highland.

Also on the bill at the music festival are Edana Minghella and the Ric Harris Trio.

Pine said he hopes to inspire people on the Isle of Wight to enjoy jazz music.

He said: "It's a style of music everyone can enjoy and it's still going strong after all these years."

On the morning of the event, Ventnor Botanic Garden will host a sale of spring plants and produce. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19767289-ADNFCR
