Saxophonist Donny McCaslin will be here in Columbus at the Wexner Center performance space this Thursday, February 23rd at 8pm. A previous winner of Downbeat’s Rising Star Poll, tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin made a strong impression when he appeared here as part of the Dave Douglas Quintet several years ago, wowing the crowd with emotionally powerful and tasteful solos that displayed deep musical instincts and ample technical skills. His strong, burly tone and inventive flights of sound reveal his confidence in crafting everything from angular tunes to ethereal ballads that play to the strengths of his collaborators.
His most recent release, Perpetual Motion, represents a leap forward for McCaslin as a composer and band leader. For this concert, McCaslin will be joined by three featured players from Perpetual Motion: Adam Benjamin on keyboards, Tim Lefebvre on electric bass, and drummer Mark Guiliana. Listen to a Clip
