Tony Kofi: Portrait of Cannonball

music
Thursday 13 September @ 8.00 PM

Alto-sax master Tony Kofi fronts this loving celebration of the jazz giant Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley.

The group traces the explosive music of Cannonball from his first session as leader in 1955, through work with Miles Davis and onto the soul-jazz of the 1960s. The repertoire includes Adderley brothers' classics like Things Are Getting Better, This Here, Del Sasser, Dat Dere, Sack o'Woe and Mercy, Mercy, Mercy - as well as a guest vocal spot by Deelee Dube exploring the memorable 1961 collaboration with Nancy Wilson.

"Tony Kofi's full-bodied sound, clear articulation and committed attack carry the immediacy and impact of the established masters of the jazz saxophone. Like them, he plays at full stretch, whether rampaging over a hard-edged groove or gently warming a ballad with a perfectly balanced vibrato" - Financial Times
