Donny McCaslin (tenor sax) Jason Lindner (piano) Nate Wood (bass) Mark Giuliana (drums) The group has a bedrock relationship with groove, but also a genius for permutation: Mr. Guiliana chops up the beat in deft, destabilizing ways, and Mr. Lindner, favoring a Wurlitzer electric piano with pedal effects, brings welcome grit and woozy atmosphere.

Mr. McCaslin seems to have direct access to emotional expression in his playing, as if it were a valve he could open at will. He's exceptionally sure-footed with his phrasing, almost never caught off balance, but he knows how to convey risk or fury through the compressed force of his tone.
