Donny McCaslin

Donny McCaslin launched 2004 with a new CD, balancing his career as bandleader with work as one of New York's most in-demand tenor saxophonists. On his latest Arabesque releae, The Way Through, the Brooklyn-based artist continues to defy label, proving he can unearth musical truth in any medium.

“The album goes in a lot of different directions, but there's a line that goes through it for me,” Donny says of his third solo effort, which follows 2003's Seen From Above and 1998's Exile And Discovery.

That “line” is a trio; McCaslin, weilding tenor and soprano saxophones; drummer Adam Cruz (also heard on marimba and steel pans); and bassist Scott Colley, Donny's co-conspirator in Lan Xang, the edgy, free blowing quartet with drummer Kenny Wollesen and alto saxophonist David Binney.
