Glyn McDonald Trio 6.00pm tonight at The Ellington

Tonight we are delighted to welcome back the Glyn McDonald Trio. The musicians have collectively performed all over the world including Vancouver, Rome, Japan and Australia.  

The group draws influence from diverse ends of the musical spectrum. From classical through to Latin, and coupled with a knack for infectious toe-tappin’ swing, their collective works rest comfortably on a bed of groove-oriented originality.

"Glyn serves it up. He isn’t into just playing chords and devices but rather describing things with music, describing specific feelings or abstract concepts. He has a vision and his music will take you there if you allow it."

Barney Mcall New York pianist, Blue Note recording Artist, pianist for Gary Bartz


An impressive young pianist who explores the musical possibilities with an enquiring mind and virtuosic skill. Watch this space...! "

Helen Matthews Jazz Program Producer, Perth International Arts Festival


MacDonald plays with style and restraint. The three men bounce ideas off each other with practised ease. MacDonald also impresses as a composer. His melodies refuse to follow predictable routes, and his harmonies twist away from sugariness."

Peter J Casey Canberra Times (Jazz Reviewer)


An appealing piano voice and a promising approach. Keep making the good music"

Tord Gustavson ECM recording artist


Bound by the clutches of beauty, these original pieces demand an inviting as opposed to confronting improvisational approach. Rhythm plays a major role…MacDonald employs a soft elegant touch. [The] feeling of intense spontaneity comes in the tracks recorded live in Perth”
