Brazilian legend João Donato and son Donatinho drop new synthy jams


Donato Sintetizamor

Brazilian legend João Donato and his son Donatinho have teamed up for a new album, Sintetizamor, out this Friday, June 9, via Deck Disc, available on iTunes. We’re premiering two tunes so you can get a taste of the album. Check out “Surreal” and “De Toda Maneira”:


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 his songs performed and/or played with folks like Cal Tjader, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Mongo Santamaria, Stanley Clark, Herbie Mann, Jack McDuff, the Village Callers, and others.
