After being out there for 6 months Shifting Sands (my jazz violin fusion album) has garnered some attention and some nice reviews. Here are just a few:

One of the “Five new B.C. indie albums to take in this season”

Stuart Derdeyn, The Vancouver Sun

“It probably goes without saying that jazz can place a wide range of demands on listeners. Each has a legitimate place, but with Shifting Sands, Macdonald offers complexity and compositional variety, as well as a lot of fun. It simply swings its way through a number of intriguing and surprisingly varied styles and nails them all. ★★★★ out of five”                     

Keith Black, Winnipeg Free Press           

“This is a must-listen-to joyous release. Macdonald’s virtuosic works and violin playing never disappoint. All the stellar musicians play exuberantly, with care and respect.”

An effort that it isn’t short on grooves and world music nods, Macdonald and company weave in and out of atypical textures on this fusion affair that’s sure to keep the listener enthralled.
