Curtis Macdonald: NEW Solo Piano release – “A Crack in the Windshield”

22 February 2018 Artists

Hello to all. It may be cold or unseasonably warm, yet it’s winter and many things are happening with some new music to unveil. Now that Im a year older and beginning my last half of my 50’s, I decided to release a solo piano performance that is an interpretation of how I feel about what’s going on in the world at this moment.

A Crack in the Windshield” is an improvisation performance in five acts that hark the essence of Claude Debussy, Germaine Tailleferre, and Maurice Emmanuel. It’s a free form post-impressionistic ballet with dustings of 20th Century avant-garde. It’s a subjective narrative of the revealing nature of our world in the early stages of the 21st century. When I was a student at California Institute of the Arts back in the early 80’s, I would do such improvisations for dance recitals. I encourage any choreographers who would like to choreograph an interpretive dance to this recording.

“Los Angeles”

“When Dreams Come True”


“A unique signature style from a prolific composer”
“The melodies (almost always featuring piano in the lead) are one killer hook after another and the rhythms and beats are ultra-smooth and ridiculously infectious. Curtis Macdonald’s music is a must-play for those who are hungry for late night chill-out tuneage with a dash of sophistication, a mellow vibe, and just the right amount of sensuality to be noticeable but not overpowering.” – Bill Binkelman
