Iowa City, Iowa (June 30, 2017)

In Orbit brings together musicians from both sides of the Canada-USA border, centered on the original compositions of saxophonist Jeff Coffin, and guitarist Michael Occhipinti, joined by brilliant bassist Felix Pastorius, Nashville/Toronto pianist Tom Reynolds, and drummer Davide Direnzo.  Jeff Coffin is an omni-present saxophonist based in Nashville, who is best known for his work with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and more recently as a member of the Dave Matthews Band.  However, Jeff has been composing original music and releasing albums with his M’utet for many years and is one of the most active instructors/clinicians working with young musicians in the United States.  Felix Pastorius is the son of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, and in recent years has established himself as a gifted bassist with an approach all his own.

The music is energetic, imaginative, and freely flows across styles.  In Orbit shares a love of great grooves expressed with soulful spirit and deep musicianship.
