Donny McCaslin

Saturday, Feb. 10 at 7:30pm | Tickets start at $30

With three Grammy® nominations and 11 albums to his name, Donny McCaslin’s path to success has been punctuated by impressive collaborations and projects, but perhaps none quite as significant as his experience working with David Bowie on the album Blackstar. McCaslin has been a spark plug in New York jazz circles for the past two decades, with his own groups and in the employ of noteworthy leaders like Danilo Perez and Maria Schneider, who led him to his work with Bowie. Known for integrating the entire range of sounds that a tenor sax can produce into his repertoire, McCaslin seamlessly transitions from mainstream modern to funky fusion to laid-back balmy ballads, all flavored with his own experimental style. Paying tribute to Bowie and beyond, McCaslin is here to prove his reputation, taking jazz down a contemporary path with profound expertise and limitless improvising technique.

Alicia Olatuja

Friday, March 2 at 7:30pm | Tickets start at $30

Praised by The New York Times as “a singer with a strong and luscious tone and an amiably regal presence on stage,” Alicia Olatuja has been astounding audiences with her exquisite vocals, artistic versatility and captivating demeanor since 2013, when she performed as a featured soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama’s Second Inauguration. Influenced by a wide range of musical styles, from gospel and soul to jazz and classical, Olatuja eventually graduated with a Master’s degree in Classical Voice/Opera from the Manhattan school of music, where she developed a special talent: a full-bodied tone, precise pitch balanced with soulful honesty and personal engagement at the lowest whisper or highest wail.
