Basil Hodge Quintet: Celebrating Horace Silver
Basil Hodge

Pianist Basil Hodge and his brilliant band pay homage to the influential American jazz piano player, composer and hard bop pioneer, Horace Silver, who died last year, aged 85.

Basil Hodge piano, Tony Kofi saxes, Steve Fishwick trumpet, Larry Bartley bass, Rod Youngs drums

Basil Hodge has played with some of the leading UK players such as Jim Mullen, Dave O'Higgins, Pete Wareham and Renato D'Aiello. He has lead his own band for some years, and has been much admired at Fleece Jazz. Basil's hard swinging, bop-tinged piano perfectly captures Silver's sound.

Multiple award winning Tony Kofi spent four years at Berklee college. He returned to the UK in 1991 and joined the Jazz Warriors. His playing on any sax is passionate.

Steve Fishwick is "well known as a fleet and expert bebopper, but his sideman performances in more experimental groups at the last London jazz festival confirmed his sharp ear for other kinds of melodies and structures" - John Fordham.

Passionate is also the word for the playing of Larry Bartley. He has a huge reputation on the UK scene.

Rod Youngs is one of the most expressive and adept musicians in the music arena today.
