Welcome to my world of music. It meshes and juxtaposes many styles of music into jazz, as well as some works are simply straight forward tunes. From straight ahead, latin, 20th century classical, fusion, gospel, funk, and romantic styles mixing in my own personal artistry. Mostly instrumental, with some vocalise added here and there on some pieces. You can listen and purchase my music as well as view my videos and photo gallery at my website http://www.genemcdonaldmusic.com
