Sharp Little Bones – Featuring Tony Kofi
Sharp Little Bones is the brainchild of bassist and composer Simon Paterson. Joined by MOBO nominated, multi-sax BBC Jazz and Parliamentary Jazz Awards winner Tony Kofi, they are a quartet of virtuosos playing brand-new compositions that are tight, energetic, catchy, and melodic. Well experienced in entertaining audiences, their sound has fresh, contemporary appeal: live acoustic forces rooted in bebop and blues, embellished with tasteful electronics and warm, analogue synth textures: an eclectic audio melting pot of jazz, funk, blues, and bop. Taking the listener on an eventful excursion of harmonic, melodic and rhythmical delight, this is music composed and improvised for feet, heart, and mind. The evening celebrates the release of Sharp Little Bones Volumes I & II, on the Ubuntu Music record label.
Line Up: Tony Kofi - tenor saxophone, Simon Paterson - upright and electric bass, Paul Deats – electric piano & Andrew Wood – drums
