BBC and Parliamentary Jazz Awards winner Tony Kofi ‘s ANOTHER KIND OF SOUL traces the explosive music of Cannonball Adderley from his first session as leader in 1955 through his work with Miles Davis to the soul-jazz of the 1960s. Recorded live at Luton’s Bear Club in 2019, it also features Andy Davies on trumpet, pianist Alex Webb, bassist Andrew Cleyndert and Alfonso Vitale on drums. This is the distilled version of two very special nights, immortalised by Paul Riley’s recordings.The album is available in limited edition 180gm vinyl—the medium of Adderley’s era—to best replicate the ambience of this remarkable live recording, and in digital format.
The album is not called A Portrait of Cannonball as there is already one bearing that name by the great man himself. It is however, without a doubt, Another Kind of Soul by Tony Kofi.
