Stock Status: In Stock

Will Donato’s new album Elevate features ten soul-inspiring tracks including the smash hit Infinite Soul which is dedicated to his hero father Joseph, a retired military man and Will’s wife Diana.  The track reached the coveted No.1 spot on the Billboard smooth jazz airplay chart and has since reached more than 2 million streams on Spotify alone.

The achievement in no mean feat, it’s a rare for a single new track to amass hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify, let alone over a million – but versatile veteran sax and flute maestro Donato pulled it off. And it’s no wonder, as Jonathan Widran states for The JW Vibe: “In this challenging time where it’s been so easy to get discouraged and feel gloom and doom, that buoyant soul-funk jam – produced by and featuring the lush retro-key and piano magic of Greg Manning – is just the burst of funk-shine we all need these days, and the perfect introduction to Donato’s new album."

Other tracks include the uplifting new single The High Road and the encouraging radio hit You Got This.

A cancer survivor who truly celebrates each day and each person he meets, Will has  performed with some of the best known musicians of the groove / smooth jazz genre, namely Al McKay of Earth Wind And Fire, Richard Elliot, Bruce Conte of Tower of Power, Steve Reid of The Rippingtons, Brian Simpson, Steve Oliver, Gregg Karukas and Nick Colionne. He has worked in the pop music genre as well - most notably with Gerald Levert, Wynonna Judd, Toni Childs, and superstar Richard Marx.

As Wildran writes: “Long a familiar presence as a sideman for countless smooth jazz stars, Donato’s latest solo album should truly ‘ELEVATE’ him to star status himself.

“It’s an eclectic contemporary jazz set of  pure optimism, wrapped in tight in the pocket grooves, spritely melodies and monster hooks.”
