Tony Kofi 5tet: Portrait of Cannonball Adderley

HULL TRUCK THEATRE, Hull Truck Theatre , 50 Ferensway , Hull , HU2 8LB

17 Jul 2020

9pm

£17.50

Tony Kofi – Alto Sax
Andy Davies – Trumpet
Alex Webb – Piano
Andrew Cleyndert – Bass
Alfonso Vitale – Drums

With special guest vocalist Vimala Rowe

Alto-sax master Tony Kofi fronts this loving celebration of the jazz giant (in every sense) Julian “Cannonball” Adderley. The group traces the explosive music of Cannonball from his first session as leader in 1955 through to work with Miles Davis and the soul-jazz of the late 1960s. Expect Adderley brothers classics like Things Are Getting BetterSack O’Woe and Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,  as well as a guest vocal spot by Vimala Rowe, exploring the memorable 1961 collaboration with Nancy Wilson.

Cannonball Adderley was one of the best-loved figures in post-war jazz. Hailed as ‘the new Bird’ on his emergence on the scene, he made historic recordings with Miles Davis and John Coltrane as well as having many crossover hits as a pioneer of soul-jazz. Spanning bebop to jazz-funk, he was an unfailingly inventive and communicative virtuoso.

“An absolute blast, one of the most exciting gigs of the year… a brilliant all-round package” London Jazz News

“Quite splendid… the kind of ensemble groove that seems like hard-bop heaven” Jazzwise
