jazz esta morto

joao donato -

João Donato might be best known in record-head circles for his brilliant jazz-funk album Quem é Quem, but he’s an absolute living legend and an icon of Brazilian music. He’s also recorded and released albums on American labels and has had his songs performed and/or played with folks like Ron Carter, Ray Barretto, Astrid Gilberto, Airto Moreira, Cal Tjader, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Mongo Santamaria, Stanley Clark, Herbie Mann, Jack McDuff, the Village Callers and others.João Donato was the second installment of our #JazzEstàMorto series, which took place on Sunday June 9th at The Lodge Room in Highland Park, where we brought some of the greatest Brazilian Maestros to Los Angeles throughout the entire month of June.
