Jazz saxophonist McCaslin grew up gigging with his father’s jazz ensembles in Santa Cruz, attended Boston’s esteemed Berklee College of Music, and began his recording career in the late ’90s. However, his collaboration with David Bowie greatly altered how he approached his craft. “His aesthetic in the studio was ‘Go for what you’re hearing, don’t worry about what it’s going to be called or categorized as,’” McCaslin recalls of the late icon.

With the expansive, diverse Blow., McCaslin takes Bowie’s philosophy to heart. Experience McCaslin’s stellar style in the intimate Bing Studio.
