New Live Album From Dennis Coffey To Be Released In March Through Omnivore Recordings

Kicking off the month of March is a new live album from R&B/jazz guitarist Dennis Coffey. The new release titled "Live At Baker's" arrives March 1st through Omnivore Recordings, and features Coffey's performance a Baker's jazz club in 2006. The nine-song set begins with Coffey showcasing his skills on a nearly eleven-minute version of Freddie Hubbard's song, "Little Sunflower." One of the highlights of the night features the Dennis Coffey original hit, "Scorpio" as he continues to work up to the song's funky breaks. Another favorite from this set is a song that Coffey originally performed, The Temptations' "Just My Imagination," in which Coffey masterfully stretches the song to the ten minute mark. He finishes up with a couple of blues numbers, the first is his rendition of Miles Davis' "All Blues," which Coffey turns in to a lighter approach. The album closer is a short, up-tempo swinging version of Jack McDuff's "Dink's Blues," which became one of Coffey's favorite songs to cover live.
