Echoes In The Night by Earl MacDonald

Jazz pianist, educator, & composer Earl MacDonald has assembled six extremely talented players, gifted in the art of expressing jazz with his current CD effort. 'Echoes In The Night.' The overall artistic contour of the disc is as smooth as it gets for the bebop idiom...........All accented by unexpected counterpoint, & tons of interesting rhythmic variety. I sense an attempt by the group to create a hybrid jazz form. If I'm on the right track, I feel their pursuit is a worthy goal. Last, may I say that the group's extemporaneous musical expression of ideas, emotions, and their life experiences are exemplified quite well in the delivery of their total musical offering.
