Marc McDonald

Saxophonist and composer Marc McDonald’s music possesses a warm, lyrical quality while spanning a broad emotional range. If the best jazz tells stories, then McDonald’s tales run the gamut from joyous to poignant, exhilarating to contemplative.

McDonald has led groups for over 25 years in the New York/New Jersey area and such cities as Honolulu, London and Athens. In 2008, he released his debut CD as a leader It Doesn’t End Here, which features his own compositions and inventive arrangements of standards. The music draws on a variety of influences, including mainstream jazz, Brazilian music, and New Orleans R&B.
