Jazz Està Morto: João Donato

Last month, Adrian Younge, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and ArtDontSleep took a journey to Brazil. Adrian and Ali were performing The Midnight Hour and we (ADS) was tour managing. Long story short, we paid our respects to the Brazilian Maestros, whose musical shoulders we stand on. We sat in the homes of Liminha, Arthur Verocai and Azymuti. We broke bread with João Donato and Marcos Valle. To believe that those humble meetings have turned into this epic series is a dream come true. Join us, for one, if not all, of our special events. 

We are offering a special package to all 5 concerts, in addition to some Jazz Is Dead Limited items.

João 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.
