Jeff Coffin and the Mu'tet
Jazz Times writes about the Mu'tet:
Any band that jams like this has earned an exclamation point in the title of its live album...equal parts Galactic and Dirty Dozen Brass Band...(Coffin) enters like a spinning top, corkscrewing his phrases into a tightly wound circle that turns into a cyclone.
On November 1st at 8:00 PM, The Vermont Jazz Center will present 3-time Grammy Winner, Jeff Coffin, saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band and Béla Fleck's Flecktones. At the VJC, he'll be performing with the Mu'tet, a group that reflects Coffin's philosophy that "music must change and mutate in order to evolve." Their repertoire consists of catchy tunes set over an array of complex feels: deep funk, New Orleans, Latin and swing. Their sound is propelled by rhythms you've never heard before and imbued with world music influences. The surprise factor is that the compositions are often in odd meters, delivered over precise, danceable grooves.
Coffin will perform at the VJC with an all-star version of the Mu'tet that includes Felix Pastorius on electric bass (Yellow Jackets, son of Jaco), Bill Fanning on trumpet, Chris Walters on piano and keyboards and Roy "Futureman" Wooten on drums and percussion. This band has recorded six albums together and uplifted venues and festivals around the world.
