TONY KOFI QUARTET FEAT. NANDI (INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY) Saxophonist Tony Kofi first came to prominence in the 1990’s 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. 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 a MOBO nomination in 2008. Tonight on the occasion of International Jazz Day, Tony will be appearing with a freshly-formed iteration of his Quartet featuring Zimbabwean vocalist Nandi. This up-and-coming singer has already worked with artists such as Jack Bruce (Cream), Emeli Sandé, Maverick Sabre, Orphy Robinson & Nao as well as appearing on The Voice in 2018 mentored by Will.i.am & Sir Tom Jones. Pianist Trevor Watkis, bassist Adam King & drummer Alfonso Vitale round out this exciting new line-up. Please join us as we celebrate jazz music, its historic legacy and ability to create community between people from every walk of life.
