Jazzfestival Viersen 2019

with Donny McCaslin, Ryan Dahle & Jason Lindner

Donny McCaslin, saxofoon

Ryan Dahle, gitaar

Jules Buckley, dirigent

Jason Lindner, piano

In his quest to explore new territories in music, tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin joins the Metropole Orkest for a genre-defying concert at the 33rd International Jazzfestival Viersen on Saturday 21 September.

Donny McCaslin is probably best known for his acclaimed work as a band leader on David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’. Inspired by the late legend’s words and vision McCaslin explores a new artistic approach. “Before working with him, things like this didn’t seem possible to me,” McCaslin says. This becomes apparent in the music on his newly released album ‘Blow.’ (Motéma Music, October 2018), a fearlessly diverse album that blends jazz, alt-rock and electronics.

For the concert with Metropole Orkest Donny will be joined by the wonderful Jason Lindner on keys and singer/guitarist Ryan Dahle. The setlist will feature work from ‘Blow.’ and earlier work by McCaslin. He will also be writing some new compositions for the collaboration with the Dutch ensemble lead by chief conductor Jules Buckley.
