ABOUT DONNY McCASLIN: 2005 Grammy nominee Donny McCaslin was raised in Santa Cruz, California. The son of a high school English teacher turned jazz musician, Donny performed with his father's band in his teenage years and then attended Berklee college of Music where he studied with Herb Pomeroy, Gary Burton, Joe Viola, George Garzone and Billy Pierce. While at Berklee, Donny began a four-year tenure in Gary Burton's band. Since moving to New York in 1991, McCaslin has performed and toured with a wide variety of groups including Steps Ahead, Danilo Perez and the Motherland Project, Tom Harrell, Brian Blade, John Pattitucci, Lan Xang, David Binney, Luciana Souza, Eddie Gomez, George Gruntz, Billy Hart, Santi Debriano, The Mingus Big Band, and many others.
