Saxophonist of the year, best album of the year in contemporary and mainstream – the list of national jazz and Juno awards and nominations establishes the tenor for Kirk MacDonald.
“Over the past decade, Toronto tenor saxophonist Kirk MacDonald has established a national identity.” – The Jazz Report
His sound is full bodied and voiced – think Cabernet Franc – full of overtones and a story to tell. While his repertoire is vast and ever evolving, Kirk is known for bop jazz lines that have a fresh inventiveness. Take Manhattan Getaway, which seamlessly alternates between 7:4 and 4:4 and draws on a harmonic complexity to match the rhythmic intrigue.
