Visual Arts: The man who shot Bob Marley

The hair. That smile. Bob Marley is one of the great icons. But a new exhibition has captured the essence of the man.

Photography: Bob Marley

The reggae star who inspired many of today's pop artists is the subject of celebrated music photographer Dennis Morris's exhibition Bob Marley, A Rebel Life at London's Proud Galleries. The unique collection dates from 1973 to 1980 and captures the Jamaican singer's personality through wildly diverse images inspired by Morris and Marley's staunch friendship. While some frames highlight the intense spirit of Marley's energised performances and life on the road, many of the images focus on the relaxed warmth of his domestic life in Jamaica. Following the phenomenal success of Morris's Destroy, a portrait of the Sex Pistols, A Rebel Life looks set to make a similar impact.

Jazz: Hang the DJ and give us some music

ON HIS NEW ALBUM, you can hear Cassandra Wilson singing Billie Holiday as re-mixed by Roni Size. He's such a devil for the decks that it takes an age before he stops DJing and starts playing. And yet, Courtney Pine in concert is living proof that the age of music hall is not dead. Marie Lloyd-style cockney charm, a lady on a trapeze, jugglers, tumblers, and Houdini-like acts of escapology are all, at least metaphorically, Pine's stock in trade. There's even a ventriloquist act of sorts: when Courtney plays his long tenor sax solo, you have time to drink a pint of beer, go to the loo, come back again and drink another pint before he reaches the climax. Pine's a big man and he can blow for hours without showing the strain. So he does, honking away heroically like the legendary bar-walking saxophonists of old. There may not be much music in it sometimes, but boy, can he blow at the Fleece and Firkin in Bristol.
