Jeff Coffin and the Mu'tet
Three time Grammy winner, Jeff Coffin is well known to fans of the Dave Matthews Band and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. He's the saxophonist in both of these genre-defying bands. In the context of the Mu'tet he's the ringleader, the daredevil saxophonist and composer who guides the Mu'tet on a roller coaster ride of stops and starts, twists and turns. Coffin really understands the marriage between funk and jazz and, like Cannonball Adderley, knows how to measure out just the right amount of hot stuff so that the audience literally cries out for more. Then Coffin delivers, giving generously, conjuring up clever, brilliantly paced arrangements that feature the high level of improvisation of each group member over a groove that doesn't stop. Plus he's got a band that absolutely kills it. The Mu'tet features Felix Pastorius on bass, Bill Fanning on trumpet, Chris Walters on keys, and guest drummer, Roy "Futureman" Wooten (of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones). Jazz Times writes: "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."
