Event

DOUG MACDONALD
Referred to as a bop-based guitarist in the tradition of Pass, Ellis and Barney Kessel, MacDonald admits to admiring "all those guys, the way they played and what they played," completing the list of major influences by naming Wes Montgomery, Johnny Smith, Grant Green and Jim Hall.

MacDonald's own name may well find its way to the "influential" list for future young musicians, given his persistent pursuit of always improving the music, always seeking new ways to present jazz and constantly honing his considerable skills. Again, from the master of understatement, Zan Stewart, comes a simple summary description of the guitarist as he likens him to Johnny Smith and West Montgomery, "who in the 1950s and '60s placed their dulcet, rich tones and smooth rhythmic styles in front of orchestras to great effect." "Guitarist Doug MacDonald takes the same sort of listener-friendly approach." He is, Stewart says, "subtle but never dull."
