Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Tony Kofi & The Organisation @ Posk Jazz Café, London - November 3

Tony Kofi (baritone); Pete Whittaker (Hammond); Simon Fernsby (guitar); Pete Cater (drums).
(Report/photos courtesy of Mochles Sa).
The occasion was the CD launch of Tony Kofi & The Organisation's new CD - Point Black.
London-based photographer Mochles Sa was present at the Posk Jazz Café event organised by Peter Kaczmarski and he kindly sent BSH several excellent shots of the musicians which we have collated in an album along with some previous shots of Eddie Henderson taken earlier this year. 
Going by the photos of the Kofi gig it must have been a great evening although tinged with sadness as the news of the death of Roy Hargrove had broken that day. As such, the evening was dedicated to the memory of the great trumpet player.
