Saxophonist Jeff Coffin (pictured) and his band the Mu'tet are returning to St. Louis for a free concert and clinic at 5:00 p.m. next Monday, July 18 at Saxquest, 2114 Cherokee St on the south side.
Coffin was in St. Louis most recently last October for a performance and workshop at Saxquest. His latest CD Duet, a duo effort with Mu'tet drummer Jeff Sipe, was released in April.
Besides Sipe and Coffin, best known for his work with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and the Dave Matthews Band, the Mu'tet also includes trumpeter Bill Fanning and bassist Felix Pastorius, the son of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius. (Keyboardist and flute player Kofi Burbridge and guitarist Mike Seal, listed as members on the band's website, will not be on hand for this gig.)
Admission is free and no advance reservations are required, but space is limited, so you may want to arrive early to make sure you get a spot. Saxquest's next free event, a clinic with mouthpiece expert Eric Falcon of Warburton USA, is scheduled for Saturday, July 30.
