With certain musicians play, you get the feeling that they’re on a level above their peers.And what’s more, it seems to come easy to them. Current saxophonists that fit this mould include Chris Potter, Joe Lovano and KennyGarrett. Add Donny McCaslin to that list. Donny McCaslin with his new project In Pursuit delivers an exceptionnal album.Great compositions, great musicianship, great soloists. With McCaslin, the musicians on this record are all first rate.


Arresting , beautifully structured works...In Pursuit is a triumph.
