Recommended Tools has wowed critics. And now, as the trio continues touring on this record, accolades for the live show are coming in as well. Check out the AAJ review of DMT at Jazz Standard. We couldn’t be more pleased to hear words like:

The flow of ideas, along with the manner in which they were stitched together, was a joy to listen to, forcing the otherwise naked display of virtuosity into the background. At times, there was nothing to do but be swept up in the musical surge.

And this weekend, Friday and Saturday, us Chicagoans can get a taste of what Budd Kopman so rightly wrote. Come on out to the Green Mill tonight and/or tomorrow to see this great trio in action!

  1. Hi Jim!
    Donny McCaslin just came to Ann Arbor, Michigan with his trio last night and let me tell you, DO NOT MISS HIS Chicago/K-zoo shows!!!!!! He just took my personal TOP spot for the year-to-date for modern/straight ahead jazz think of the energy/intensity/creativity of Sonny Rollins Way Out West trio, but in his OWN incredible talented voice. The band SMOKED and the crowd here went nuts.I sustained a serious case of jazz neck swingin back and forth on his deep groove. Ive seen over 100 concerts this year, including his octet Spring of 08 show in Ann Arbor, and he remains at the TOP O THE HEAP! I will, from this day forward, see him ANY time and buy EVERY cd he will ever put out!

    The trio kicks serious ass!
