Hello friends,

Welcome to the latest update from the world of Jason Crane!



-- THE JAZZ SESSION #29: DONNY McCASLIN. Jason Crane interviews  
saxophonist Donny McCaslin. One of the busiest saxophonists in the  
business, McCaslin plays with Maria Schneider, Dave Douglas and many  
others. He also fronts his own groups, including the band on his new  
CD, In Pursuit (Sunnyside, 2007). A follow-up to his critically  
acclaimed record Soar (Sunnyside, 2006), In Pursuit features  
compositions commissioned for a Chamber Music America grant. McCaslin  
talks about his father’s influence, playing with Gary Burton, and the  
life of an in-demand musician.


COMING UP: What a list! The months ahead will feature trumpeter  
Avishai Cohen, Anat Cohen, Tord Gustavsen, Matt Shulman, Joan Stiles,  
Laurie Pepper (wife of Art Pepper), Ben Sidran, Ingrid Jensen, Brian
