The music Curtis Macdonald creates evokes emotional and passionate feelings. His soulful contemporary weaving of jazz and new age music is stylized with an effervescent and transparent wash of modern electronica that becomes the foundation for his memorable acoustic piano melodies and lyrical improvisations that are heartfelt and reflective with a dash of cool.
