JAY COLLINS BAND http://www.interjazz.com/jaycollins

This music is best described as roots, blues, poetry and modern jazz all at once. The band has been gigging around NYC at museums, bars and performance spaces --- attracting a growing audience. Led by Jay Collins at vocals, tenor & soprano saxes, flute & bansuri, the group features Dred Scott at piano, Diego Voglino on drums, John Robinson on bass, and Moses Petrou on percussion and back-up vocals. Their sound can be described at Dr. John meets Coltrane, or Bob Dylan meets Pharoah Sanders.

Mr. Collins has worked as a sideman with diverse artists, some of them legendary, including: Andrew Hill (jazz pianist/composer), the Allman Brothers Band (rock legends), Gregg Allman and Friends, Bobby Sanabria (afro-cuban percussionist), and LeRoy Vinnegar (be-bop bassist, 1928-1999).

“Some musicians simply sound good and Mr. Collins is one of them. He has flow, his ideas rolling out of the horn with a narrative sense..." -New York Times

Birdland is located at 315 West 44th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues. Reservations are recommended. For more information, please call 212-581-3080.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
