“Glyn MacDonald is a talented pianist from Australia, the land down under. I was asked to evaluate his latest CD.

Upon listening, I was reminded of a movie a couple of years ago called, “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, which had the same musical influences from Miles Davis, Lester Young, Bud Powell and other jazz greats from the 50’s. The recording is sharp and tight knit. All of the compositions are original, which is a great accomplishment considering most classic jazz CD’s out there contain one or two tracks from someone else. I enjoyed the tracks, “City Lights” and “2nd set at the Supper Club” which displayed the impressive talents of Carl Mackey and Matt Jodrell on Trumpet and Saxophone. The Glyn MacDonald Trio provides music for Jazz lovers to listen to on a lazy evening”.
