In 2014 David Bowie and his producer Tony Visconti were in the audience for a concert by Maria Schneider and her 17-piece big band. They were hugely impressed and Bowie decided that he would like to collaborate with Schneider, which resulted in the single "Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)
." This song bears the influence of Schneider's work. McCaslin told Mojo
"Looking back on it, it reminds me of a piece of Maria Schneider's called 'Dance You Monster To My Soft Song,' which I know was David's favourite song of hers. It had a sinister side and really crunchy chords. So that helps me get inside of that song a little bit."
