Donny McCaslin is a saxophonist and bandleader who mixes rock, jazz, and psychedelia to create a hard, dynamic art-pop fusion. Performing with a video installation by filmmaker and visual artist Johnny Moreno, McCaslin and his stellar bandmates will present music from their new album BLOW.,“grafting their trademark sleek, emotive electrojazz onto lush, proggy art rock” (Rolling Stone).

With several solo albums to his credit, McCaslin came to wider prominence when David Bowie hired McCaslin as the music director for his final studio album, Blackstar(2016), charging McCaslin with the task of assembling a jazz ensemble adept enough to play rock music. Now, two years after Blackstar's release, Donny McCaslin returns with a new album, BLOW., a definitive statement on McCaslin’s expanded artistic direction under Bowie’s influence. By adding guitar and vocals to the mix along with an audacious visual language, BLOW. produces an evolved sensory offering not to be missed. After returning from a triumphant world tour, McCaslin comes back to his hometown for this BRIC House Sessions show.

Noveller is the solo electric guitar project of Brooklyn-based composer and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. Handling the guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it’s housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer.  

Known for his soulful rock 'n' roll saxophone sound, Freddy DeBoe has traveled the world Daptone Recording Artists Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones, and James Hunter Six, and he spins an all-vinyl DJ set of soul, blues, and beyond to start the night.
