Jazz at Blair says
April 9th, the Blair Big Band will close its concert season featuring Grammy award winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin at 8pm in Ingram Hall. Jeff Coffin is an internationally recognized saxophonist, bandleader, composer and educator and has been traveling the globe since the late 20th Century. He is a 3x Grammy Award winner from Bela Fleck & the Flecktones and played with them from 1997-2010. In July 2008, Jeff began touring with Dave Matthews Band and officially joined the group in 2009. When not on the road with DMB, Coffin fronts his own group, Jeff Coffin & the Mu'tet, and works around the country presenting music clinics.

The second half of the concert will feature the Nashville Jazz Composers Collective in their first public performance. The NJCC is comprised of over 30 of the finest musicians on the globe. This group of all-star musicians focuses on original compositions, improvisation and community-based music education. Influenced by diverse musical backgrounds, open minds and a passion for great music, the NJCC represents a new generation of music and musicians in Music City.
