About this clip:

About the concert:
GRAMMY-winning saxophonist Donny McCaslin is a relentlessly exploratory musician who fully embraces the influences of modern electronic music and bebop in equal measure. He rose to prominence working with Maria Schneider, and though her he came to the attention of the late pop icon David Bowie, who employed the saxophonist and his quartet (including Mark Guiliana) to be the band on his final statement of artistic genius, 2016’s Blackstar. McCaslin’s new Edition Records album, I Want More, is an inspired electro-acoustic session featuring the Blackstar band, keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and drummer Guiliana. For this night, the massively talented Kneebody multi-instrumentalist Nate Wood stands in for Guiliana.
