Jeff Coffin

Saxophonist and flutist Jeff Coffin has always pushed the envelope, whether in his work with Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, or with the Dave Mathews Band, or with his over 20 recordings as leader. Consider his new recording, Between Dreaming And Joy, featuring guests including Robben Ford, Vicente Archer and Michael League, amongst a cast that also includes DJ Logic, Brazilian percussion, an ice cream truck, and much more, who assist the leader in his boundless compositional impulse and eclectic sonic display.

From Monday, Dec. 12 through Friday, Dec. 16, one cut from Coffin’s Between Dreaming and Joy album will be featured each morning on the New Day, New Play spotlight on my Daybreak show.

Listen to “Vinnie the Crow” from Between Dreaming and Joy, above.

In jazz radio, great announcers are distinguished by their ability to convey the spontaneity and passion of the music. Gary Walker is such an announcer, and his enthusiasm for this music greets WBGO listeners every morning. This winner of the 1996 Gavin Magazine Jazz Radio Personality of the Year award has hosted the morning show each weekday from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. And, by his own admission, he's truly having a great time.
