Tony Kofi

‘A Portrait of Cannonball’ Alto-sax master Tony Kofi fronts this loving celebration of the jazz giant (in every sense) Julian ‘Cannnonball’ Adderley. With Byron Wallen on cornet, Alex Webb (piano), Andy Cleyndert (bass) and James Maddren (drums) the group traces the explosive music of Cannonball from his first session as leader in 1955 through work with Miles Davis to the soul-jazz of the late 1960s. Expect 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 Dubé exploring the memorable 1961 collaboration with Nancy Wilson. In 2016 Dubé was the first British winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan Vocal Award.

Line up: Tony Kofi (alto sax), Alex Webb (piano / MD), Byron Wallen (trumpet), Andy Cleyndert (bass), Alfonso Vitale (drums) and guest vocalist (tbc).
