Jay Collins Band @ Pianos (NYC) April 18th


Sign in to view read count
Jay Collins is a player-in-demand. His dynamic style on sax, flute and vocals has taken him around the world, touring with the Allman Brothers Band and on recordings with jazz greats like Andrew Hill. Now fronting his own band, the Jay Collins Band, he will be appearing for one set only on Monday, April 18th, at Piano’s in New York City.

The Jay Collins Band is a five-member combo that uses New Orleans-style funk, classic jazz, poetry, and blues in the service of getting down. Jay belts out the songs, then blows up a storm on sax and flute, while the band cooks right along with maturity and taste. There is also plenty of room for jamming, with the indomitable Dred Scott on keyboards leading a rhythm section of two drummers and a bass.

Jay Collins’ latest recording, “Poem for You Today”, is on Hipbone Records and will be released in April 2005.

Piano’s 158 Ludlow Street New York, NY Phone: 212.505.3733 1 set at 9pm tickets: $7.00

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
