Jam on the Groove

 

  

 
MacDonald is a session percussionist who has laid down tracks for dozens of albums, most notably for Roberta Flack.  He is also responsible for two critically acclaimed late 70s albums which focused on his playing.  Not surprisingly, his long percussion breaks made him popular with dance music fans: "Jam On the Groove" is a old school break classic, and "The Path" documents the utlization of drums over the course of music history.
