Additional Personnel / Information

There is an old Southern adage that says "Show me who you're runnin' with and I'll show you who you are". Everybody is in fast company on this disc, with MacDonald leading the way. This artful Guitarist is runnin' with the big leaguers, but of course he is a made member of this elite cadre.. 'Blue Capers' swings pleasantly with MacDonald's slick solo. 'Until The Real Thing Comes Along' ..Well, the real thing came along on this toe tapper, with everybody happily swinging. 'Bluesology" Fine version of Bag's tune that features a strong Bass solo by John Heard. Doug MacDonald follows with an answering soliloquy that rises above even Heard's excellent effort. Art Hillery bops into the scene with a stellar offering. On the 4 bar exchanges the musicians played chicken and nobody swerved, Tasty tub work by Johnny Kirkland. 'A Little Tutu'.. MacDonald catches fire on this tune with fast, exciting, idea filled Guitar wizardry. Hillery adds his intelligent musical thoughts to this fast paced composition. 'I Thought About You'.. Fine interpretation of the Van Heusen / Mercer piece that is a showcase for the leader's Guitar virtuosity. Drummer Johnny Kirkwood plays with sensitivity on all the tunes, with tasty percussion work that adds greatly to the overall recording Doug MacDonald, Guitar, John Heard, Bass, Johnny Kirkwood, Drums, Art Hillery, Piano. In October, Johnny Kirkwood suffered a stroke and passed away November 13, 2000
