Tomorrow evening saxophonist Tony Kofi brings his powerful sound to The Chapel, the intimate room used every other Wednesday by Stratford Jazz at No 1 Shakespeare Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, and he has the BoHop Trio for company.

Tony Kofi was born in Nottingham, studied at Berklee and rose to prominence through The Jazz Warriors and Gary Crosby’s Nu Troop. He now plays all over the world, both leading his own bands and in the groups of Abdullah Ibrahim and Jamaaladeen Tacuma.

The last time Kofi played this venue was with Chris Biscoe in their Eric Dolphy tribute back in 2010. The BoHops are Neil Hunter on piano, Geoff Pearson on bass and Ian Beestin on drums, last heard here with Greg Abate last year.

The fun starts at 8pm, tickets are £10 (students half price) and you can find out more about Stratford Jazz and its alternate Wednesdays programme here.
