Tony Kofi- Inside Straight

FREE live funky jazz to listen to, dance to and enjoy. Tony Kofi leads a quintet playing Cannonball Adderley tunes.



One of the UK's top saxophonists Tony's a great student of jazz history and he's been researching the music of Cannonball Adderley which he thinks has been unduly neglected. Under Tony's leadership INSIDE STRAIGHT will be playing some of Cannonball's funkiest tunes, like "MERCY, MERCY, MERCY", "JAZZ SAMBA", "COUNTRY PREACHER" and of course "INSIDE STRAIGHT".
