Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

Future Passed Trio @ Vortex Jazz Club Dalston . Sept 21.

Tony Kofi  alto/baritone sax; Anders Olinder  Hammond organ; Winston Clifford drums
I am not a trained musician, but I've been listening to jazz since Adam was a lad, and I do like to recognise  a tune, and hear a lyric  I can relate to.  There are exceptions to the rule and this  experience was my Sea Change.
The Trio was cohesive, but individuals were given generous  solo space.   With one exception,  a McCoy Tyner piece, the main bulk of the varied set list was written by Tony Kofi,.  I didn't need lyrics, the arrangements spoke volumes, and the musicality was magnetic. Seeing/Hearing is Believing, get to see these guys, or you will never know what a cracking night you missed.
Flore.
