SJO’s monthly concert series continues in great style, with legendary Miami musician, Mr. Joe Donato! The beloved South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame 2012 Inductee is widely recognized not only as a saxophonist, but as a respected band leader, entertainer, composer and lyricist.

Born in Vineland, New Jersey, Joe’s parents encouraged him to start studying the sax at the tender age of Five. By 8 he was already playing with adult musicians, and at 12 Joe joined the American Federation of Musicians Union. At the ripe age of 15, and with his parents’ blessing, Joe dropped out of school to tour with a variety of bands for more than ten years.

Donato was “discovered” by University of Miami’s then Dean, Bill Lee, in 1968 and was offered a scholarship to study music at U.M. Since arriving on New Year’s Day 1970, Joe has lived, studied, performed, and taught in South Florida. He is versatile in the entire woodwind family with a unique performance style and approach to improvisation reflecting a wide variety of musical influences.  He has had an extraordinary life and career including international tours and performances with luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Carmen McRae and Nina Simone. Joe has also served as an adjunct faculty member or lecturer at U.M., Miami-Dade College and F.I.U.
