Originally from Philadelphia, George began his career in Hawaii, where he played withTrummyYoung and Gabe Balthazar, and with Del Courtney at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. Relocating to LasVegas, Doug found himself immersed in a vibrant music scene, and began playing in lounges and showrooms with jazz greats, including Joe Williams, Carl Fontana, Jack Montrose, and Carson Smith. On to Los Angeles, Doug played in the bands of Bill Holman, Ray Anthony, and John Clayton, and performed and recorded with Jake Hanna, Rosemary Clooney, Jack Sheldon, Bob Cooper, Ross Tompkins, Ray Brown, Buddy Rich, and Ray Charles. Doug also began recording and performing with his own trio and quartet, as well as his 13 piece ensemble,The Jazz Coalition.

To date, MacDonald has released a prolific catalog of 15 CDs spanning configurations as a soloist, in duos, trios, quartets and big bands.

Doug’s 15th release, his first on his own dmacmusic label, is Califournia Quartet released in May of 2019. It is a mainstream jazz ensemble featuring some of theWest Coast’s finest musicians.The quartet includes Kim Richmond on alto sax/flute, Harvey Newmark on bass, and Paul Kreibich on drums.The hard swinging disc, produced by Ben Scholz, has six original MacDonald compositions and the American-songbook standards “A Beautiful Friendship”, “IfYou Could See Me Now”, “TheThings We Did Last Summer and “Tenderly”. Recorded in 2017 at Tritone Studios, the recording was engineered byTalley Sherwood, mixed by Maurice Gainen and mastered by Robert Vosgien at Capitol Studios.

Back on theWest Coast, MacDonald continues to do what he loves and does best, perform, record and in the past few years teaching via online lessons. He continues to tour and perform around 300 plus performances a year across the country from Hawaii to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and NewYork City, as well as to Spain, Hawaii, Finland, Estonia, and England.
