As if he wasn’t busy enough, Coffin is equally acclaimed as an educator and clinician, working with students of all ages around the world. “The spirit and breath of the music is what I take away from the listening and playing,” he says of his influences, which he collectively dubs “Spirit Music.” Coffin and his Mu’tet — which, on the current tour, features all-stars Felix Pastorius (son of the legendary Jaco and current bassist for The Yellowjackets) on bass and Coffin’s old Flecktones mate Roy “Futureman” Wooten on drums, plus Chris Walters on keys and Bill Fanning on trumpet — performs Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Blue Wisp Jazz Club (700 Race St., Downtown). $20. thebluewisp.com.
