“I asked Donny McCaslin to write and record the Great American Tenor Trio Record, half jokingly. Well, he delivered, with a stunning set of music.” – Dave Douglas

“I’ve always loved the freedom that you have with a trio and how much room for expression there is in that context. I feel this is my strongest recording yet.” – Donny McCaslin
