Jan McDonald has been a fixture in the Los Alamos music scene. Whether conducting the Los Alamos High School band or performing with the Los Alamos Big Band, McDonald has shared his music with the community for a long time.
He will return to town, along with the Dalton Trio, at 7 p.m. Friday at Fuller Lodge for “An Evening of Jazz.”
The concert will feature jazz selections such as “Georgia on My Mind,” “Body and the Soul,” “Alone Together” and “Black Orpheus.”
Additionally, McDonald’s original compositions along with Bert Dalton’s original work will be performed.
In addition to the concert, the trio and McDonald are collaborating on an album, titled “Sweet.” The album should be completed in the spring.
McDonald said he has worked with the trio for several years. He enjoys playing with the trio because “mostly (it’s) just a rare opportunity to play with a great trio. It’s just a joy and a delight for me to do that and bring it to the public.”
He explained he met the Dalton trio, which is made up of Dalton, piano; Milo Jaramillo, base; and John Bartlit, drums; through the musician network in Santa Fe.
