Intimate Jazz with Chuck Redd and Donato Soviero
June 8, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$20
Chuck Redd is well known internationally as a performer on drums and vibraphone. Chuck began recording and touring the globe when he joined the Charlie Byrd Trio at the age of 21. He also became a member of the Great Guitars (Barney Kessel, Byrd and Herb Ellis.) To his credit are 25 European tours and six tours of Japan, with the Barney Kessel Trio, Ken Peplowski and the Benny Goodman Tribute Orchestra, Terry Gibbs and Conte Candoli. He served as Artist-In-Residence at The Smithsonian Jazz Café in Washington, DC from 2004-2008.
Donato Soviero has been working in and around the DC area for twenty years as a performer. Noted for his superb artistry as a guitarist and composer, Donato’s versatility affords him equal comfort in many venues, both as bandleader and sideman. While his roots are firmly planted in the tradition of mainstream jazz, his scope of musical interest is nonetheless wide. As composer and arranger, these influences can often be heard shaping his own unique voice.
As a teenager, Donato’s inspiration to play the guitar came from Wes Montgomery, and Jimi Hendrix. Later, Joe Pass, Howard Roberts, and Emily Remler were among his teachers. A resident of the Washington D.C. area since 1982, Donato has appeared with top local and national artists, as well as leading many of his own groups in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean.
