About the Album

It Doesnt End Here is a lilting melodic samba in six-eight time that serves as the title track to Marc McDonalds new release. After 25 years as a sideman playing everything from punk to cabaret, It Doesnt End Here marks the alto saxophonist and composers CD debut as a leader and is comprised of Marcs first love, namely mainstream jazz with bop, Brazilian, and New Orleans influences. The album highlights both his robust alto playing and talents as a composer, with eight original compositions and three inventively re-imagined standards. Regardless of style or source, however, the music is distinguished by an approachability that doesnt sacrifice depth.

Joining Marc on alto sax are Jim Ridl (piano), Steve Cardenas (guitar), Karl Spicer (bass), and Gene Lewin (drums).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
