Kofi Blows 'The Silent Truth'

Award winning saxophonist Tony Kofi has performed with many of the leading talents in the world of Jazz and popular music having toured extensively throughout the world, most recently as the youngest member of the World Saxophone Quartet.

Spring 2008 will see the release of Tony's third album 'The Silent Truth' under the Specific Jazz label. 'The Silent Truth'sees the critically acclaimed Tony Kofi Quartet reunited, that Kofi perfected while playing Monk. "It was only a matter of time before revisiting the magic of the quartet format," says Kofi. "It's been four years since recording the music of Thelonious Monk (on the album All Is Know), so I thought 2008 was the right time to bring us all back together, same line-up only this time performing original compositions, having solidified our group sound from the first recording". The pieces range in mood from the driving swing of If I Spoke My Mind to the playful and gently reflective Cicada, and demonstrate a continuing maturity in the sound of both the group and the individual players.

The Tony Kofi Quartet features Winston Clifford on the drums, pianist Jonathan Gee and bassist Ben Hazelton. The Silent Truth will be released on 7 April 2008 with an album launch concert on 21 April 2008 at The Purcell Room, South Bank Centre, London
