  • Description

    The Silent Truth comes two years after Kofi's previous album of his own work, Future Passed. While that album focused on the trio format, utilising a classic B3 Hammond organ sound and solid, repetitive grooves and hooks, here he returns to the four-piece sound that he perfected while playing the works of Thelonious Monk. "It was only a matter of time before revisiting the magic of the quartet format," says Kofi. "It's been four years since recording the music of Monk (on the album All Is Know), so I thought 2008 was the right time to bring us all back together, same line-up only this time performing original compositions, having solidified our group sound from the first recording". The pieces range in mood from the driving swing of If I Spoke My Mind to the playful and gently reflective Cicada, and demonstrate a continuing maturity in the sound of both the group and the individual players.
    Tracks: Giants / Dante / Cicada / First Breath / If I Spoke My Mind / Oont / Unremoved / Inner Truth / Disharmony / Bishop's Move.
    Also available: The Tony Kofi Quartet Plays Monk - All Is Know (SPEC001) and Tony Kofi - Future Passed (SPEC004).
