Phi Mu Alpha Jazz Festival Set for Feb. 27

Award-winning music will fill Baldwin Auditorium during Phi Mu Alpha’s 42nd Annual Jazz Festival.

Jazz tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin will perform with the Truman Jazz Ensemble at 8 p.m. Feb. 27 in Baldwin Auditorium.

McCaslin is one of New York’s most in-demand tenor saxophonists. On his latest Arabesque release, “The Way Through,” the Brooklyn-based artist continues to defy labels, proving he can unearth musical truth in any medium.

The recording earned critical praise in JAZZTIMES, which called it McCaslin’s “most fully realized project to date ... McCaslin blends his inside and outside sensibilities into one sumptuous and satisfying package.

“McCaslin stands poised to be one of the flame bearers of jazz in the twenty-first century. A well-equipped, immensely talented musician with seemingly limitless technical expertise, he consistently proves himself to be much more than merely a gifted technician.”
