Tony Kofi: Portrait of Cannonball

Alto-sax master Tony Kofi fronts this loving celebration of the jazz giant Julian ‘Cannnonball’ Adderley. The group traces the explosive music of Cannonball from his first session as leader in 1955, through work with Miles Davis 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 Dubé exploring the memorable 1961 collaboration with Nancy Wilson.  In 2016 Dubé was the first British winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan Vocal Award.

“Tony Kofi’s full-bodied sound, clear articulation and committed attack carry the immediacy and impact of the established masters of the jazz saxophone. And 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
