Featuring: Jay Collins, Ross Rice, Peter Dougan, Kyle Esposito, Manuel Quintana,and Carlos Valdez
The saxophone player of choice for famous artists like Gregg Allman, Levon Helm, Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen , and the band Little Feat , Jay Collins played on 2 Grammy-winning recordings with Mr. Helm , and a platinum-selling DVD with the Allman Brothers Band ( Live at the Beacon Theater ).
In an era where most learn to play music in a school, Jay Collins is one of those increasingly rare musicians who mostly learned to play, “on the bandstand” from older, more established musicians. He was the horn arranger, saxophone player, and Musical Director for the Gregg Allman Band, a gig he held for 15 years.
He currently fronts his own bands on vocals, keyboard, and saxophones throughout the NY area, as well as performing and arranging with the horn section at Levon Helm’s Ramble in Woodstock NY . Jay also toured with The Dukes of September , a collective featuring Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, and Michael McDonald , and more recently, with the legendary band, Little Feat , playing in the horn section and doing arrangements for the group. “He has a killer tone …”- Gregg Allman .
Collins is also proud of his work with other musicians like Ray LaMontagne, British soul man James Hunter, latin-jazz drummer Bobby Sanabria, and jazz artists Jacky Terrasson and Andrew Hill. He continues to be a staple of the recording and performing scene in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
