Bowie collaborator Donny McCaslin joins the line-up for Hull Jazz Festival 2017

New York tenor sax titan Donny McCaslin is the latest international artist to join the line-up for Hull Jazz Festival Summer Edition 2017.

A dynamic presence on the New York jazz scene for the best part of three decades, McCaslin and his band became household names in 2016 after they collaborated and recorded with David Bowie on what was to be his final album, Blackstar.

Theirs is a freewheeling, grooving electric jazz that brings in elements of rock and electronica, following in the footsteps of jazz fusion pioneers like Weather Report and Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters.

Joined by Jason Lindner (keyboards), Tim Lefebvre (bass) and Mark Guiliana (drums), ‘the Blackstar band’, McCaslin plays at Hull Truck Theatre on Thursday 13th July.

Tickets, priced £20 available from Hull Truck box office, online, in person or by calling 01482 323638.
