Release Date: October 23, 2018 – Ear Up Records (EUR0422)

Saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band) & drummer Roy ‘Futureman’ Wooten (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones) have been making incredible, dynamic, intergalactic music together since 1997. For 14 years Coffin toured the world with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones and he and Futureman have shared a musical journey ever since. Futureman continues to tour and record with the Flecktones (and his own symphonic projects) while Jeff has been touring and recording with Dave Matthews Band since 2008. Even with their busy schedules, Coffin & Futureman still make time to present educational clinics to students, record, and give performances around the country when time and scheduling allows.

THE MOMENT OF NOW is their first duo recording and showcases the breadth of their indescribable musical communication as well as the obvious mastery of their instruments. With 8 Grammy Awards between them, this is a historic and monumental musical offering by two world renowned musical pioneers.

“On October 7th, 2018 Roy and I discussed making a duo recording. On the afternoon of October 8th, 2018, THE MOMENT OF NOW was recorded live at my home studio in Nashville, TN. Well, everything except the piano overdub, which was recorded down the street…Recording this project was akin to sitting down and having a conversation with a great friend. Roy is an incredibly dynamic, empathic musician and because he listens at the highest level it’s easy to just let things flow as we did here. It’s a very real and personal joy to make music with him.” – Jeff Coffin

“In our age of information and process overload, Music has a timeless voice that can also deliver the immediate and necessary soundtrack of our thoughts, feelings, and imagination.  Jeff recently asked me to come over to his studio to capture some of our in-the-moment musical conversations. So…We took a day to express what I like to call  ‘Music in the Moment of Now’, and I am happy that Jeff and I can share this single day of recording with you….Enjoy!” – Roy “Futureman” Wooten
