Jeff Coffin and the Mu’tet at the Vermont Jazz Center
Saturday November 1, 2014
Three time Grammy winner, Jeff Coffin is well known to fans of the Dave Matthews Band and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. He’s the saxophonist in both of these genre-defying bands. In the context of the Mu’tet he’s the ringleader, the daredevil saxophonist and composer who guides the Mu’tet on a roller coaster ride of stops and starts, twists and turns. Coffin really understands the marriage between funk and jazz and, like Cannonball Adderley, knows how to measure out just the right amount of hot stuff so that the audience literally cries out for more. Then Coffin delivers, giving generously, conjuring up clever, brilliantly paced arrangements that feature the high level of improvisation of each group member over a groove that doesn’t stop. Plus he’s got a band that absolutely kills it. The Mu’tet features Felix Pastorius on bass, Bill Fanning on trumpet, Chris Walters on keys, and guest drummer, Roy “Futureman” Wooten (of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones). Jazz Times writes: “Any band that jams like this has earned an exclamation point in the title of its live album…equal parts Galactic and Dirty Dozen Brass Band…(Coffin) enters like a spinning top, corkscrewing his phrases into a tightly wound circle that turns into a cyclone.”
Sponsored by Dave Ellis of Ellis Music and Roger Wilken of Clear Solutions.
Tickets sliding scale $20-40, students $15, available on-line, at door, reserved by phone and at In The Moment Records, Main St Brattleboro.
$1/extra per MC/Visa ticket

Local club gives public speakers confidence and skills
Northampton, MA – November 5, 2014 – Northampton area-based Speakeasy Toastmasters will host our Open House on March 5 at 6:45 pm at the Elaine Center, 20 North Maple Street in Hadley.

The benefits of becoming a Toastmaster include:
Opportunities to network
Improving public speaking
Learning spontaneous expression
Expanding presentation confidence
Advancing writing and memory skills
Increasing listening and effective communication
Most people need to speak well as part of their jobs and in social gatherings. Yet fear of public speaking and social phobias hold people back. At Toastmasters, you can conquer anxiety by giving short speeches on the subject of your choice before an encouraging, fun and supportive group.
About Speakeasy Toastmasters – Part of the nonprofit Toastmasters International, the Speakeasy Toastmasters chapter formed in December 1983 to help local businesspeople, students and professionals alike become more comfortable speaking to groups. Members improve their presentation skills and learn to facilitate meetings through regular practice. Membership is open to the public.
