This Sunday, June 9, at 4pm, KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” features the music of The João Donato Trio.
We’ve captured the “Father of Bossa Nova” on a couple of dates. He played live on KUVO from the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio back in 2000, accompanied by the late drummer Claudio Slon and noted Colorado bassist Mark Simon. Also from 2000, we’ve got the Donato Trio with bassist Luis Alves and the Symphonic Jazz Orchestra of Sao Paulo.
Donato was in fine form on these dates, with fresh compositions to add to the Brazilian jazz canon.
We hope you can tune in for a front row seat to some of the best live jazz around, captured and re-broadcast for your listening enjoyment every Sunday afternoon at 4pm with host Susan Gatschet. “On Stage,” a KUVO exclusive!
