Plays Monk: All Is Know.
Tony Kofi (Alto Saxophone) Byron Wallen (Trumpet) Larry Bartley (Double Bass) & Rod Youngs (Drums) Composition: Monk and the Nun by Ornette Coleman Recorded.
This album is the culmination of 5 years' study by Tony and the musicians associated with his Monk Liberation Front project, and heralds the arrival of this great talent as a bandleader, fully formed as a soloist and with a real A-Team rhythm section behind him (Jonathan Gee, Piano; Winston Clifford, drums; Ben Hazelton, bass plus Orphy Robinson, vibes). The musicians take the familiar, and not-so-familiar, themes of Thelonious Monk, giving them a true contemporary feel while never losing sight of the tradition they represent.

The album justifiably won the BBC Jazz Awards Album of the Year when it was released in 2005. It was the culmination of five years' study by Kofi and the musicians associated with his Monk Liberation Front project and heralded the arrival of this great talent as a bandleader. Kofi was joined by a real A-Team rhythm section (Jonathan Gee, Piano; Winston Clifford, drums; Ben Hazelton, bass and Orphy Robinson, vibes). The musicians take the familiar, and not-so-familiar, themes of Thelonious Monk, and give them a true contemporary feel, while never losing sight of the tradition they represent. The album justifiably won the BBC Jazz Awards Album of the Year when it was released.
His melodies more or less dictate the direction of improvised solos and his knotty harmonies are not amenable to much alteration, but Kofi and pianist Jonathan Gee have cleverly expanded on what might be called the Monkish atmosphere. If asked to name the album which sums up British jazz-rock fusion in its heyday, I'd settle for this. The album's title was to prove prophetic, because the heyday was practically over in 1972, but all the best elements of that style are here. It may be loud, and tends to overdo the portentous manner at times, but there's so much going on, so much creativity unleashed, that a bit of pomp is neither here nor there.
