"Mr. McCaslin seems to have direct access to emotional expression in his playing, as if it were a valve he could open at will."
About This Show
"...intense, visceral and engrossing" - Ottawa Citizen
Three-time GRAMMY nominee Donny McCaslin is the leading saxophonist, composer, and musical pioneer of his generation, receiving wide commercial and critical acclaim in jazz, rock and electronica circles alike.
With 12 albums to his name, McCaslin is best known for his collaboration and friendship with the late David Bowie, who tasked McCaslin to work hand-in-hand on his final album, Blackstar.
"It was like a dream except it was something I never could have dreamed of," reflects Donny. "David Bowie was a visionary artist whose generosity, creative spirit, and fearlessness will stay with me the rest of my days." The result was Beyond Now, McCaslin's latest album dedicated to Bowie. Since its release on Motéma Music in 2016, Beyond Now has garnered praise from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, The New York Times, Associated Press and more.View the Performer's Website
