Catch Xhosa Cole Quartet at More Music, Morecambe, Saturday 4 March 2023
Xhosa Cole presents his brand-new ensemble ‘Rhythm-a-ting’, an exploration and re-imagining of the music of Thelonious Monk, taking those original timeless melodies and adding a contemporary touch with new arrangements and new rhythmic interpretations.
Critically acclaimed saxophonist, flautist and composer, Xhosa Cole is an embodiment of the success of numerous community outreach arts programmes in Birmingham. Having started playing Tenor Saxophone at Andy Hamilton MBE’s Ladywood Community Music School, Xhosa has now established himself among the long legacy of Birmingham Saxophonists including Soweto Kinch and Shabaka Hutchings.
