Bowie's ambassador, saxophonist Donnie McCaslin, goes to Kiev

A few days before his death in January 2016, David Bowie released his latest album, Blackstar. For the legendary artist, this record was a grand finale, but for jazz master Donnie McCaslin, whose saxophone defined the visionary stylistic sound of Blackstar, it was only the beginning.

Two years after the release of Blackstar, McCaslin is back with a new album, Blow., With a brand new, clear vision that fully reflects Bowie's influence and McCaslin's development as an artist. "It wouldn't be possible to work with him," Grammy nominee McCaslin says of Blow, his most daring work in two decades. He will present it in Kiev.

Date of Place: November 12, Caribbean Club

Despite his long successful career, McCaslin grew up playing jazz ensembles with his father in Santa Cruz, California, and began recording his own material in the late 1990s. Working with Bowie has undoubtedly influenced his vision of his craft. "He always said, follow what you hear, and don't be disturbed by what they call someone's label," McCaslin recalls the words of the iconic artist. "Let's play music and enjoy it." McCaslin took those words to heart and embodied this philosophy on the Blow record.

McCaslin emphasizes Blow's "wide range of moods," and some of them, such as the energetic 10-minute Break the Bond instrumental track or the chaotic Exactlyfourminutesofimprovisedmusic, will be familiar to his fans. Other tracks include Tempest, the slow-motion Eye of the Beholder, or the Beastie Boys inspired by The Opener's A Tribe Calles Quest.

Donnie McCaslin and his band will certainly fascinate you and showcase jazz you haven't heard before.
