    Long a busy member of the Los Angeles jazz community, guitarist Doug MacDonald has both a quiet sound and a hard swinging straight-ahead style. On Gentle Rain he performs five quartet numbers with pianist Ross Tompkins, a duo with the late pianist (who is heard on one of his final recordings) on "These Foolish Things," two numbers in which pianist Marty Harris is in Tompkins' spot, five pianoless trio numbers and a solo guitar feature on "Gentle Rain." The music is all standards including the one "original," "Cry," which is really a slightly disguised "I Cried for You." MacDonald sounds unhurried even at the faster tempos, and mellow even when the music is at its most heated. He is the epitome of cool jazz guitar throughout this enjoyable set, one of his finest to date. ~ Scott Yanow
