A heartfelt congratulations to saxophonist and Greenleaf artist Donny McCaslin for being nominated for a 2013 GRAMMY Award for Best Improvised Jazz Solo! The aptly-titled “Stadium Jazz” is the opening tune on his “Casting For Gravity” album we released this year, and the one that has garnered this acclaim——it’s also one of our favorite jams on the record. You can stream the track in the Bandcamp player above. Enjoy!

Of course, an outstanding soloist needs outstanding accompaniment, and the personnel on this record is top shelf to say the least. Many thanks to Mark Guiliana, Jason Lindner, Tim Lefebvre, and producer David Binney for helping make this record all that it is.

Let’s hear it for Donny!
