The Verdict
159 Edward Street, BN2 0JB, Brighton, United Kingdom
Tony Kofi (saxes) Jonathan Gee (piano) Ben Hazleton (bass) Rod Youns (drums). Door/food 7.0 pm, music 8.30. Students £12 (see note below).

At the London Jazz Festival in 2003, Tony Kofi's Quartet famously played Thelonious Monk's entire 70-tune repertoire in a marathon six-hour concert, a triumph which resulted in the release of his first recording as leader All is Know (Specific) It also resulted, more recently, in his legendary gig at the Verdict in July 2016, when the original quartet reformed and with tremendous verve played 17 of the 70, including the lesser-known gems Gallop's gallop, Light blue and Think of one. Such was the intensity of the session and of the audience's response, the second set lasted for over an hour and a half. Tonight, they continue from where they left off on that memorable evening. * "Tony is a red blooded, muscular soloist in whom Charlie Parker's wild, unruly tone is often writ enjoyably large, yet who is also capable of moments of delicate, tender lyricism." - AllAboutJazz

NOTE. To avoid disappointment, guests are advised to book in advance via this site (up to 6.0 pm on day of gig). The earlier you book, the nearer the front your seat will be. If claiming a student discount, please bring valid student ID and you will be refunded in cash on the night. Please arrive in good time for the gig: it is difficult to hold seats once the music has started. In addition to the tickets allocated to this site, a certain number may be purchased in person or by phone 01273 674847 from the cafe and at other jazz gigs. Remaining unreserved tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis from 7.0 pm on the evening of the gig. Tickets booked online cannot be refunded in the event of non-attendance.
