Bio

Although Jazz saxophone player and singer-songwriter Jay Collins is the horn player of choice for famous artists Gregg Allman, Levon Helm, Donald Fagen, and others, his earthy, original songs are being admired and recorded by young musicians in the Hudson Valley, NYC, and beyond.

"Jazz is a huge part of what I learned about music, but it's just a small piece of what I do.”
Although Jazz saxophone player and singer-songwriter Jay Collins is the horn player of choice for famous artists Gregg Allman, Levon Helm, Donald Fagen, and others, his earthy, original songs are being admired and recorded by young musicians in the Hudson Valley, NYC, and beyond.
Fronting his own “Kings County Band” on gigs throughout the region, as well as continuing to perform and arrange the horn section at Levon Helm’s Ramble in Woodstock, Jay also plays in The Dukes of September, a musical collective featuring Fagen, Boz Scaggs, and Michael McDonald.
In an era where most learn to play music in a school, Mr. Collins is one of those increasingly rare musicians who learned to play, “on the bandstand”.
With his Kings County Band, Collins mixes up classic Soul, New Orleans rhythms, and Blues into a funky stew that satisfies!
