A Portrait Of Cannonball

Tony will be presenting his ‘Portrait of Cannonball’ paying homage to the late, great, US saxophonist Cannonball Adderley.

Saxophonist Tony Kofi first came to prominence in the 1990s as a member of The Jazz Warriors and Gary Cosby’s Nu Troop as well as playing with high profile musicians including Billy Higgins, Clifford Jarvis and Courtney Pine. In 2009, his quartet headlined the Rochester Jazz Festival in New York. And just to emphasise his international status, Tony was one of the featured saxophone players with David Murray’s iconic US band the World Saxophone Quartet, the first UK born musician in that band.

Awards include the 2005 Parliamentary Jazz Awards - Best Ensemble, Radio 3 Jazz line up album of the year 2005 and 2008 BBC Jazz Awards - Best Instrumentalist as well as also being nominated for a MOBO in 2008.

Tonight, Tony will be presenting his ‘Portrait of Cannonball’ paying homage to the late, great, US saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. Joining Tony will be an outstanding band comprised of Alex Webb-piano, Andrew Cleyndert-bass and Alfonso Vitale-drums to perform music written by and associated with this giant of jazz.
