Its been nearly a decade since Michael McDonald has released an album of original material, but hes back with what may arguably be his finest effort over the course of his illustrious career. The 12 track album titled Wide Open is a musically diverse journey that explores elements of pop, rock, country, folk, jazz, blues and soul.
