Jeff Coffin Next Time Yellow
“NEXT TIME YELLOW is the first full group project of my own that I recorded in my home studio (ITA Studio). I’m very happy with the way it turned out and with the way everyone played on it. It’s loose and intimate, it feels great all the way thru and I’m very grateful to all the incredible artists who put their creativity into this project. Thank you all from the deepest part of me. Nashville has become what I always hoped it would when I moved here in 1991 – a truly musically diverse city with incredible improvisors in many, many genres. We continue to cultivate the music and hope you, the listener, enjoy the fruits from our labors of love.” – Peace, JC
