Acclaimed saxophonist Donny McCaslin takes a bold leap forward with his tenth album as a leader. McCaslin's gargantuan tenor sound finds an ideal setting to rampage through the ferocious grooves and electronic textures of keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Tim Lefebvre, and drummer Mark Guiliana. Couching his trademark gift from brawny melodies in lurching dub rhythms, swirling electronica-inspired atmospheres, and arena-rock power, McCaslin has crafted a game-changer of an album, fusing a wealth of forward-looking influences into one wholly new modern jazz sound.
