As the bandleader on David Bowie's final album Blackstar, saxophonist Donny McCaslin witnessed first-hand the musician's penchant for reinvention. McCaslin applied that mindset to his new album Blow, which combines his propulsive saxophone playing with vibrant electronica and bombastic alternative rock, and which contains influences of jazz as well as from the likes of Radiohead and Dirty Bourbon River Show.

"Before working with Bowie, things like this didn't seem possible to me," McCaslin said about his new songs, were performed at the BIMHUIS by New York singer/songwriter Jeff Taylor.


Regular visitors of the BIMHUIS know Donny McCaslin as a fixture in jazz, as a tenor sax virtuoso and a composer with a penchant for both lyricism and challenging electronic experiment. The Donny McCaslin Quartet is strongly influenced by hybrid styles from past and present, from the early fusion of Weather Report to the current wave of electronic music.

Personnel: Donny McCaslin: tenor saxophone; Jeff Taylor: vocals, guitar; Jason Lindner: keyboards; Owen Biddle: bass; Zach Danziger: drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
