SAXQUEST EVENT – JEFF COFFIN – Wednesday Oct 27 – 7PM

When: 2010-10-27

Its with GREAT enthusiasm that I invite you out to another wonderful event at Saxquest. Next week on Wednesday evening (Oct 27) at 7PM we’ll be presenting a clinic with three-time Grammy award winning member of BELA FLECK & THE FLECKTONES and the DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, JEFF COFFIN. This is a very rare opportunity to talk one-on-one with one of today’s most in demand players.

Coffin rejects all labels and categories other than “music” and “musician.” He has traveled the world with the FLECKTONES since 1997 and with the DAVE MATTHEWS BAND since 2008, performing with musicians of all walks. Along the way, Coffin has absorbed an astounding range of influences. “Whether it be New Orleans Second Line, African music, Indian Ragas, folk songs, Alan Lomax field recordings, jazz, or funk,” he says, “the spirit and breath of the music is what I take away from listening and playing. It’s what decides for me whether I like it or not.”

Known for sometimes playing alto and tenor sax simultaneously, with a nod to Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Coffin seeks out the extraordinary in his saxophone sound and in his technique of improvisation. Reaching for the unique is something Jeff makes an integral part of both his playing and teaching. As a highly in demand educator, Jeff has presented clinics from Farmington, Maine to Perth, Australia and is also an internationally acclaimed Yamaha and Vandoren Performing Artist/Clinician since 2000. In addition to the Flecktones and the DMB, Jeff also leads his own group, The Mu’tet which takes it’s name for the word mutation, giving way to Jeff’s belief that music is constantly changing and mutating.

Its such a tremendous thrill for us to bring such a fantastic event to you! If you haven’t been to a Saxquest event yet, be sure this one doesn’t pass you by. Please print and distribute the attached flier to as many people you know who may be interested. Thanks for your support!!!

I hope to see you at SAXQUEST next Wednesday – Oct 27 at 7pm.
