Look Here for the Fall Schedule

First up: Donny McCaslin Trio
Tuesday, September 9, 2008 (8 p.m.) | Fulkerson Recital Hall, HSU

One of the most electrifying tenors on the current jazz scene, McCaslin--2008 DownBeat Critics "Rising Star Tenor Saxophonist" Poll winner--replaced Chris Potter in the Dave Douglas Quintet and has been a star member of the Maria Schneider Orchestra for the past five years. (He was nominated for a Grammy for his solo work on Schneider's acclaimed "Concert in the Garden.") McCaslin's 2007 CD "In Pursuit" won critical raves, and this fall he's touring behind a new trio album, "Recommended Tools," featuring bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Johnathan Blake.
