Following his adventure as saxophonist/band leader on David Bowie’s Blackstar, Donny McCaslin presents an audiovisual performance based on his new album Blow.
As the bandleader on David Bowie’s final album Blackstar, saxophonist Donny McCaslin witnessed firsthand 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 bands such as Radiohead and Bon Iver.
‘Before working with Bowie, things like this didn’t seem possible to me,’ McCaslin says of his new songs, which will be sung at the BIMHUIS by New York singer/songwriter Jeff Taylor.
