KIND OF BLUE Tony Kofi Sextet Play the Album

An all-star band celebrating the 60th anniversary of the recording of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue.

More than a milestone in jazz, Kind of Blue is a defining document of twentieth century music, one of those incredibly rare works of art that achieve equal popularity among musicians, critics and the public at large.

Highly innovative at the time of its release Kind of Blue has widely influenced subsequent music, including jazz, rock and classical genres. Even if you’ve never owned a copy of this classic album it’s tunes have become part of the global soundscape and you’ll instantly recognize “So What”, “Freddie Freeloader”, “Blue in Green”, “All Blues” and “Flamenco Sketches” as old friends.

Tony Kofi is the UK’s leading alto saxophonist and one of the few UK artists to have recorded in New York. This band played this music to a sell out crowd at Ronnie Scotts earlier this year as part of the clubs 60th anniversary celebrations.
