Future Passed

Tony Kofi

Tony Kofi's sophomore effort for the Specific Jazz label was a complete departure from his debut Monk project. The idea for the album was born in 1994, when Kofi was taking part in the Fuji Jazz Festival with jazz hip hop group US3. After seeing a performance by the Lou Donaldson & Dr. Lonnie Smith Group, he was immediately captivated by the sound of the B3 Hammond Organ.

Later that year, fate conspired to bring US3 and Smith together for a one-off recording project…and the seed that was sown in ’94 sprouted. So, when Kofi met Anders Olinder in 2001 and saw how he approached the mighty B3, it was only a matter of time before he set his mind to composing music around its sound and finding the right musicians to complete his vision.

Alongside Olinder, Kofi brought in some of the UK's finest musicians in the form of Robert Fordjour on drums, Byron Wallen (Trumpet), Cameron Pierre (Guitar) and Donald Gamble (Percussion).
