David Bowie recruited jazz saxophonist Donny McCaslin and members of his group to record what became the legendary musician’s final album ★ (Blackstar) which was released one year ago yesterday. Bowie died at the age of 69 just two days after ★ was issued, and McCaslin paid tribute to the iconic performer during a recent NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert appearance.
The saxman McCaslin brought along keyboardist Jason Lindner, drummer Mark Guiliana and Tedeschi Trucks Band bassist Tim Lefebvre for the three-song set at Bob Boilen’s desk. The group that backed Bowie performed an instrumental version of the Blackstar track “Lazarus” as well as “Shake Loose” and “Glory” from McCaslin’s 2016 LP Beyond Now.
