Acclaimed saxophonist Donny McCaslin takes a bold leap forward with his tenth album as a leader, Casting for Gravity. McCaslin’s gargantuan tenor sound finds an ideal setting to rampage through in the ferocious grooves and electronic textures of keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and drummer Mark Guiliana.
Couching his trademark gift for brawny melodies in lurching dub rhythms, swirling electronica-inspired atmospheres, and arena-rock power, McCaslin has crafted a game-changer of an album, fusing a wealth of forward-looking influences into one wholly new modern jazz sound. ~Editorial Review | Amazon

At your leisure, listen to “CASTING FOR GRAVITY” by Donny McCaslin
Fast Future finds McCaslin and company – keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and drummer Mark Guiliana, along with longtime producer David Binney – hurtling further into the relatively unexplored crossroads between jazz and electronica with virtuosic musicianship.
Long influenced by fusion pioneers like Weather Report and Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, McCaslin integrates those hybrid instincts with innovative modern artists like Aphex Twin and Skrillex. ~Editoral Reviews | Amazon
