The Jazz Session #39: Donny McCaslin

Posted under Podcast & Saxophonists

Jason Crane interviews saxophonist and composer Donny McCaslin about his new record, Recommended Tools (Greenleaf Music, 2008). The new album is McCaslin’s statement in the saxophone trio format, and he’s joined by two of New York’s finest — bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Johnathan Blake. McCaslin shines on this album of original compositions, plus Billy Strayhorn’s Isfahan. (NOTE: McCaslin was on The Jazz Session #29 last year in an interview that featured an in-depth look at his life and work.)
