  • Cover
  • Jeff Coffin
  • The Art of Openness
  • By Frank Alkyer
  • Coffin is best known as the saxophonist in Dave Matthews Band, but the three-time Grammy winner also leads his own group—the funky, free and fierce Mu’tet. Coffin juggles a career of world tours and killer side projects, all while remaining intensely dedicated to teaching the next generation of improvising musicians.
