Greg & Junko MacDonald: Timeless

This album is dinner jazz, very cool and easy listening.

Begin the Beguine

To hear this song see top of page there is a little audio player. Press play button.

Cole Porter and steel drums with some French accordion? Check it out.

Mona Lisa

Something Stupid

A cute, bouncy love song, Something Stupid is still very popular in Europe.

Around the World in 80 Days

(Also featuring Pierre Grill on accordion and Shawn Ishimoto on guitar)
Makes me want to travel.

Around the World in 80 Days was the first movie I saw in Cine-o-Rama!

Volare

(When I play this it makes me want to eat pasta and meatballs. It also reminds me of a peaceful era, long gone.)

Songs are: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Ave Maria (both Bach and Shubert), La Donna e Moble, Today, Amapola, Beautiful Dreamer, Edelweiss, On Wings of Song, Over the Rainbow, Canon in D, Barcarolle, Santa Lucia, What a Wonderful World.

Canon in D

We play this at every wedding gig we do. It's a wonderful and etherial song.

Edelweiss

This will certainly make you think of scenes from Sound of Music.

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

A Bach favorite. This is so unusual on stee pan, and so pristine clear. I think we set a new industry standard.

Greg & Junko MacDonald: A Real Steel Christmas

Jingle-Bell Rock

This is one of the happiest Christmas songs ever. It'll make you write to Santa.

Silver Bells

I think of James Stewart and It's a Wonderful Life when I play this song. It's a snowy, city, Christmas Eve kind of song.

O, Holy Night

This is my all time favorite Christmas song. It's what Christmas means to me.

Jingle Bells

(Sample not currently available.)
This must be the favorite Christmas song for kids.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
