Tony Coe began his performing career with Humphrey Lyttelton’s band and in 1965 Count Basie offered him a place in the Basie Band sax section. His credits since then include the John Dankworth Orchestra, Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Band, Stan Tracey, Mike Gibbs, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gilespie and Bob Brookmeyer. Coe’s extensive experience in recording is heard on such films as Superman II, Victor Victoria and he is the featured tenor sax soloist in Henry Mancini’s music for the Pink Panther films. “Tony Coe is one of the most remarkable and brilliant musicians in the world” - Humphrey Lyttelton. “If my life depended on a jazz ballad, I think I’d ask Tony Coe to play it” - Richard Williams, The Independent.
