Win Signed Vinyl & CD’s of Donny McCaslin’s Forthcoming Album Blow, out Oct 5th!

As the bandleader on David Bowie’s final album Blackstar, saxophonist Donny McCaslin collaborated with the Starman to carry forward his penchant for reinvention. With his upcoming studio album — a daring fusion of vibrant electronica, and bombastic art-rock due this fall — McCaslin applied that mindset to his own work, pushing his music in a bold new direction. Propulsive and improvisational alternative music combines with a heady blend of vocals, saxophone and flute, pianos and Wurlitzer, electric bass and pummeling drums that captures McCaslin’s core roots while also bringing in more recent influences such as Radiohead and Bon Iver.

Supported by a top-notch cast of musicians that includes Sun Kil Moon’s Mark KozelekBlackstar bandmate Tim Lefebvre, and fellow Bowie collaborator Gail Ann Dorsey, McCaslin applies his jazz roots in thrilling ways throughout Blow.’s hour runtime. “The idea was to just really go for exploring these collaborations and documenting everything,” explains McCaslin, adding that the project had a “good gestation process” and developed “in a way that didn’t feel rushed.”
