In Pursuit

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 Kenny Garrett. 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 and include Dave Binney (as), Ben Monder (g), Scott Colley (b), Antonio Sanchez (dr), and Saturnino Pernel (perc).

About the Author

Hey everybody, my name is Blaine Fallis. Studied jazz at NTSU (now UNT) for 2 1/2 years before going on the road as a bassist for 4 years. I used to write for About.com as their Jazz Guide and later their Contemporary Jazz Guide, or whatever they decided to call it at the time. That went on 4 years. Later I edited for AllAboutJazz and wrote occasional articles and reviews there. Modernjazz.com is a site I ran for awhile but put it on hold. Well, it's back, baby! Currently my wife and I run A-Train Creative: atraincreative.com
