KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” features the music of The João Donato Trio on Saturday, September 19, at 10 pm.

We 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 Deab 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’ll tune in for a front row seat to some of the best live jazz around, captured and re-broadcast for your listening enjoyment every Saturday evening at 10pm with host Susan Gatschet.  “On Stage,” a KUVO JAZZ exclusive!
