Live Review: Basil Hodge at The Verdict
Basil Hodge Quartet
The Verdict, Brighton
Friday 9th May, 2014
This was Basil Hodge’s second gig at The Verdict with long-time collaborator Tony Kofi and it will surely be one of many in the future.
Basil Hodge’s tribute to one of his favourite pianists, entitled Mode for McCoy, showed both the powerful and energetic drumming of Rod Youngs, and the incredible fluidity of Tony Kofi, here performing on his main saxophones, alto and soprano. Bassist Larry Bartley provided solid backing and melodic soloing throughout.
