Jeff Dazey: “Song for Atatiana”

Posted by on Jan 18, 2021

Happy MLK Day! In the spirit of Dr. King, we’re handing the microphone over to Fort Worth’s Jeff Dazey, who, after honing his skills in Leon Bridges’ horn section, has supplied some unforgettable sax elements for Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, not to mention some standout features.

Thoroughly shaken by the October 2019 shooting of Atatiana Jefferson in his hometown, Dazey enlisted an eclectic assortment of Austin talent to help realize the tribute he had in mind, including local duo Greyhounds, one half of the Moeller Brothers on drums, and the always-incandescent vocals of Tameca Jones. “Song for Atatiana” was rounded out by Buds’ engineer/producer Sam Patlove and hits its most poignant moments when watching the music video of the same name, so be sure to check it out at least once today.
