Donny McCaslin Group

About:  

Acclaimed saxophonist Donny McCaslin takes a bold leap forward with his tenth album as a leader, Casting for Gravity. McCaslin’s gargantuan tenor sound finds an ideal setting to rampage through in the ferocious grooves and electronic textures of keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and drummer Mark Guiliana. Couching his trademark gift for brawny melodies in lurching dub rhythms, swirling electronica-inspired atmospheres, and arena-rock power, McCaslin has crafted a game-changer of an album, fusing a wealth of forward-looking influences into one wholly new modern jazz sound. McCaslin and band earned crossover accolades when they served as the backing combo on David Bowie’s last album, Blackstar. It was a coming out party for a performer the jazz community knew well, and McCaslin has taken that opportunity to broaden his sound – and his audience – while maintaining his fierce allegiance to improvisational jazz. At the Jazz Festival, he will be joined by Nate Wood on drums, Jason Lindner on keyboards, and Jonathan Maron on bass.
