Doug MacDonald Trio featuring Jazz guitar with woodwinds and brass with Special guest...Comedian and Vocalist Tony Russell. Throughout his recording career, starting in the 1980s (see "Discography"), MacDonald has never been afraid to try new approaches to his music, for example on the 2009 Fourth Stream, subtitled "The Jazz Coalition With Strings". In between, he has been heard on Sea Breeze, Resurgent and the Cexton labels, usually in the company of such contemporaries as pianist Ross Tompkins, bassist Ray Brown and drummer, Jake Hanna. He has been well featured as a sideman in live performances with Stan Getz, George Shearing, Joe Williams, Sarah Vaughan, Buddy Rich to name a few. He has recorded with a virtual who's who of jazz, including Jack Sheldon, Hank Jones, Bob Cooper, Snooky Young, Bill Holman and the Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.
