Jeff Coffin's Mu'tet
The Mutet is led by 3x Grammy winning saxophonist & composer Jeff Coffin. On tour with Dave Matthews Band since 2008 and with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones since 1997, Coffin strives to expand himself, his band-mates and listeners with music flavored by his wide musical interests. Drawing from African, New Orleans, Indian, funk, jazz, folk, Gypsy, rock, fusion, Brazilian and other styles of music, Coffin sends shockwaves down peoples spines with his fierce soloing and inspiring compositions. A passionate and curious player, Coffin is known for sometimes using guitar effects on his sax and flute as well as playing two, count emtwo, saxes at the same time!
On drums is the legendary Jeff Apt. Q-258 Sipe. Jeff & Jeff have been playing together for many years and Sipe recorded on the Mutet cd BLOOM as well as an upcoming duet project with Coffin. He is renowned for his mind bending drumming with the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio, Susan Tedeschi, Phil Lesh, Project Z, Jonas Hellborg & Shawn Lane, Leftover Salmon, Alex Machacek, The Jimmy Herring Project, and many, many others. When Jeff Sipe unleashes his whirlwind of rhythms and grooves they have to be seen and, especially, heard to be believed.
