Courtney Pine

Jazz musician Courtney Pine recently brought up Radiohead a couple of times during an interview with the Guardian:

Radiohead is a name that Pine keeps coming back to. “The last two albums have been outstanding. I would call it jazz – jazz as a true reflection of social change and the climate at the time. I worked with Art Blakey, and he said that jazz travels from the creator to the artist to the audience, and that’s all you need to remember. We have this thing at the moment called smooth jazz, which is very successful, but to me it sounds like porn-film music. What Radiohead are doing is far more exciting.”
