Jeff Coffin Explores The Bottom Half
While touring together under the Acoustic Planet banner last summer, Umphreys McGee performed with the members of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones on numerous occasions. The group hit it off with saxophonist Jeff Coffin especially well and invited him out to Chicago for their New Years run in December. Coffin performed with Umphreys McGee once again Saturday when the sextet rolled through his Tennessee homestate for a gig at Knoxvilles Bijou Theatre. The saxophonist emerged for Intentions Clear and Jazz Odyssey during Umphreys McGees first set and The Bottom Half, Jazz Odyssey and Higgins during the groups second set. He also appeared on Bloody Well Right during Umphreys McGees encore. Umphreys McGee will perform at Boulder, COs Fox Theatre tonight.
