He was drum major at Costa Mesa High School and already working five nights a week at a local club on Balboa Island by his junior year.

Doug MacDonald: Big Band Extravaganza

Read "Big Band Extravaganza" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci

Doug MacDonald and the L.A. All-Star Octet: Overtones

Read "Overtones" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Doug MacDonald's mind is as active as his fingers. The Los Angeles-based guitarist divides his time between writing and playing, and he writes as well as he plays, which is impeccably. Overtones, on which he leads an All-Star Octet (we checked, and all-star is precisely the proper term), is MacDonald's fourth album in the last year ...

David Angel Jazz Ensemble: Out on the Coast

Read "Out on the Coast" reviewed by Troy Dostert
