About the artist
Joe Diodato is an Italian Jazz Vocalist and Composer whose music mixes classical jazz & swing with funk, soul and folk music. He sings in three different languages and his compositions are the result of his musical influences, from the Great American Songbook to South-American Latin jazz, including the Classical Neapolitan Songbook and Italian folk music. Joe models his practice on his idols such as Kurt Elling, Mark Murphy, Frank Sinatra, Roy Hargrove, Chet Baker, Pino Daniele and many others.
In June 2019, Joe released his debut EP “Ma Groove”, a project that combines classical and modern jazz, influenced by Joe’s collaboration with emerging artists from the South-East London jazz scene.
The EP has been recorded by Joe’s Quartet consisting of:
- Dani Diodato (guitar),
- Benjamin Crane (double-bass),
- Joel Waters (drums)
- James Akers (sax)
- Jonny Liebeck (keys)
