Jeff Sings With Bowie's "Blackstar" Band at (le) Poisson Rouge

Exactly one year after the passing of the great David Bowie, I joined the Donny McCaslin Group at (le) poisson rouge for a performance of DB's "A Small Plot of Land". It was NYC Winter Jazzfest and the energy in the room was through the roof. It is such a joy to know and work with Donny, Mark Guiliana, Nate Wood, and JASON LINDNER, as well as have the chance to explore David Bowie's music in the context of his final band. You can hear these fellas on David's final record, "Blackstar". And to hear the studio version of our cover of "A Small Plot," pick up Donny's latest LP, "Beyond Now".
