Donny McCaslin Group
“Fiercely contemporary and exploratory, though not so abstract as to be inaccessible.… The man digs into the material, no question, and never runs out of ideas—or passion.”—JazzTimes
Protean tenor sax titan Donny McCaslin’s crowd-winning ways are sure to delight Columbus jazz fans. 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. All About Jazz notes: “Each new record from tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin is cause for celebration.… McCaslin's brawny-meets-brainy approach continues to drive his music, and his restless spirit has helped to create another unique, enduring monument to his artistry.” 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.
Set up cabaret-style, our intimate Performance Space offers a perfect setting for live jazz. You experience the music up close with superb sound and can sip wine, beer, or a soft drink as you enjoy the show.
Tickets for this event go on sale to the general public on January 1.
