SPECIAL GUEST: Gail Ann Dorsey _ voice, guitar



Donny McCaslin had been working for 20 years when in 2016 David Bowie called him in to collaborate on “Blackstar”, the great British musician’s final album. While that experience catapulted him onto the international scene, most of all it deeply affected his conception of music. For the TJF, McCaslin will be playing material from his latest work, “Blow”, which feels the Bowie influence. “I wanted the depth of my experience with him, and the impact on my life, to be reflected,” McCaslin pointed out in an interview with The Guardian. Making this an extra-special occasion, joining him at the TJF will be Jason Lindner (keys) and the fiery Gail Ann Dorsey -here voice and guitar- two more extraordinary musicians recruited by Bowie. Look forward to an evening of music that reveals the nature of new jazz – incandescent, smartly blending with rock, pop and electronic sounds.
