The new album ‘Beyond Now’ from the leader of “David Bowie’s Last Band”, Donny McCaslin, is out today!

On the album, Donny pays tribute to Bowie by re-imagining two tracks by the legend (“A Small Plot of Land” and “Warszawa”), alongside powerful originals, which bring his genre bending, electronica-meets-jazz style to new heights. Donny is joined by Timothy Lefebvre, Mark Guiliana, Jason Lindner- the same band that featured on Bowie’s final release, ‘Blackstar’.

Donny McCaslin was interviewed by The Guardian to discuss his experience working with David Bowie on Blackstar. 

McCaslin’s latest album Beyond Now, which is influenced by McCaslin’s time working with Bowie, is his tribute to the late icon.

“The experience of creating music with Bowie proved so deep, and its aftermath so jarring, that McCaslin decided to turn his new album, Beyond Now, out 14 October, into a tribute… McCaslin knew his Bowie salute had to be special. “I wanted  the depth of my experience with him, and the impact on my life, to be reflected,” he said. “I was digging deep on every take to get the gravitas I felt it should have.” -Jim Farber, The Guardian
