Pre-Order Donny McCaslin’s “Fast Future” on iTunes Today + Tour Dates

Posted by: mark on March 4, 2015 @ 5:20 pm
Filed under: Donny McCaslin, Events


We’re happy to announce the iTunes pre-order for tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin’s new release Fast Future. Fast Future reprises the stunning electro-acoustic quartet from McCaslin’s critically-acclaimed album Casting for Gravity that garnered McCaslin a 2014 GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Instrumental Jazz Solo” on the track “Stadium Jazz.” However as the title implies, Fast Future finds McCaslin and company – keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and drummer Mark Guiliana, along with longtime producer David Binney – hurtling further into the relatively unexplored crossroads between jazz and electronica with virtuosic musicianship. Long influenced by fusion pioneers like Weather Report and Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, McCaslin integrates those hybrid instincts with innovative modern artists like Aphex Twin and Skrillex.

“I really love the sonic textures and ambient vibe that you hear in a lot of that music,” says McCaslin of the influence that electronica and EDM (Electronic Dance Music) has had on his music. “Having these guys improvising and interacting within that sonic landscape feels great.” Pre-Order your copy now!

Donny will be touring throughout the US and Canada, don’t miss the chance to see him live!

Posted by: mark on February 20, 2015 @ 12:16 pm
Filed under: Dave Douglas, Dave Douglas (Artist Thoughts), Events


You might want to make plans to be in New York from March 19 through March 22 when Dave Douglas will team up with legendary alto player and composer Lee Konitz for four nights of shows at Jazz Standard.

Dave said it best, “I am so honored and thrilled to be playing with Lee, there is so much to learn from this absolute master. Rehearsals have been a trip! We are doing a few brand new pieces for me, by both Lee, and by Lennie Tristano, as well as working on standards I haven’t performed in probably thirty years. The rhythm section will be Matt Mitchell, Linda Oh, and Ches Smith. Make plans now! Looking forward to seeing you there.”
