Hi folks,

The Jazz Session passed 100,000 downloads last week! Thanks for your 

This week's episode is...

THE JAZZ SESSION #39: DONNY MCCASLIN. Jason Crane interviews saxophonist 
and composer Donny McCaslin about his new record, Recommended Tools 
(Greenleaf Music, 2008). The new album is McCaslin’s statement in the 
saxophone trio format, and he’s joined by two of New York’s finest — 
bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer Johnathan Blake. McCaslin shines on 
this album of original compositions, plus Billy Strayhorn’s Isfahan. 
(NOTE: McCaslin was on The Jazz Session #29 last year in an interview 
that featured an in-depth look at his life and work.)

TJS CAUSE OF THE MONTH(S): Musicians' Village in New Orleans

The tragedy in New Orleans was a turning point in my life, even though 
I’ve never been there. For me, it was the single most glaring example of 
what’s wrong with our government and right with our nation. I’ve been 
featuring New Orleans charities — particularly those that deal with 
cultural restoration — in my Cause of the Month for quite a while now. 
I’m proud to announce the newest addition:

Musicians’ Village was conceived by New Orleans natives (and jazz 
musicians) Harry Connick, Jr. and Branford Marsalis. Musicians’ Village 
will provide a home for both the artists who have defined the city’s 
culture and the sounds that have shaped the musical vernacular of the world.

Please help these folks do what they do by visiting their Web site:

And keep an eye on http://thejazzsession.com in the upcoming weeks for a 
show featuring residents of Musicians' Village.
