Donny McCaslin - “Blow”

David Bowie Blackstar Collaborator DONNY McCASLINReleases Blow., New Album October 5 on Motéma Music

As the bandleader on David Bowie’s final album Blackstar, saxophonist Donny McCaslin witnessed first hand the musician’s penchant for reinvention. With his upcoming studio album - a daring fusion of vibrant electronica, and bombastic altrock due this fall - McCaslin applied that mindset to his own work.

“Before working with him, things like this didn’t seem possible to me,” McCaslin says of his new material, which arrives two decades into an acclaimed career. “The affirmation of that project and how wonderfully that turned out artistically - I feel like anything is possible now.”
