With just one listen to John McDonald’s new album, Right Place, Right Time, we are instantly transported to a land of sunshine and no stress. The former frontman of the local party band John McDonald and the Mango Men created the album with the same high energy we love him for. His latest creation blends tropical instrumentation, world beat rhythms, and positive lyrical themes. The uplifting track “Azaa Loo (Celebration!)” even features a West African ensemble, whose vocals were recorded separately across the globe and meshed in with McDonald’s part thanks to the wonders of technology. Order a copy of the mini-vacation today, and enjoy the sweet words of McDonald’s inspiring life philosophy!
