Various Artists, "Focus on Bossa Nova", Sony/BMG [Japan] #988017 (2005).[CD Compilation]

This compilation includes Donato performing in the following tracks, both available for the first time on CD:

--Yana Purim: Querendo Voce/I Apologize (Hoffman/Nelson/Goodhart)

Personnel: Yana Purim (vocal), Joao Donato (piano & arranger), Alex Malheiros (bass), Pascoal Meirelles (drums), Cidinho Moreira (percussion) and Arnaldo DeSouteiro (producer).

In his liner notes, Mr. DeSouteiro wrote:

During the sessions for Yana Purim's debut album, recorded in 1980, I had the privilege to assemble an all-star band, which included some of Rio's most-in-demand musicians. A gifted lyricist, who collaborated with Michel Colombier, Mal Waldron and Hermeto Pascoal, to name a few, Yana (Flora's sister) performs Querendo Voce, her Portuguese version of I Apologize, backed by the legendary João Donato on piano, and Azymuth's bassist Alex Malheiros, among others.

--Vinicius Cantuaria: Saudades de Voce (Cantuaria)

Personnel: Vinicius Cantuaria (vocal & guitar), Joao Donato (piano & arranger), Luiz Alves (bass), Robertinho Silva (drums), Marcio Montarroyos (flugelhorn), Danilo Caymmi & Ze Luiz (flutes), Leo Gandelman (tenor sax), Serginho & Simoes (trombone) and Giancarlo Pareschi (concertmaster)

In his liner notes, Mr. DeSouteiro wrote:

Donato is once again featured in another bossa gem from the Eighties, Saudades de Voce, one of the best tracks from Vinicius Cantuaria's self-titled debut as a leader. Fresh from his stint as a drummer for Caetano Veloso, Cantuaria sings and plays guitar in this album, a very hard-to-find item. Donato's sultry arrangement, for strings & horns, is a lesson in less is more...

This CD also includes:

--Alaide Costa: Minha Saudade (Donato/Joao Gilberto)

Personnel: Alaide Costa (vocal) with studio orchestra arranged by Maestro Carioca

In his liner notes, Mr. DeSouteiro wrote:

Minha Saudade is performed by a cult songstress, Alaide Costa, who is adored by Brazilian musicians. The original recording was done by João Donato, playing accordion as a sideman on an album by the late guitarist Luiz Bonfa in 1955. Alaide's rendition, four years later, was the first one with lyrics, which were added by João Gilberto.

"Para a gravação do segundo álbum de Miucha & Tom Jobim, em 79, o produtor Aloysio de Oliveira preferiu a atmosfera de New York. A presença de feras como Ron Carter, Oscar Castro Neves e Rubens Bassini contribuiu para um resultado final ainda mais sofisticado, destacando-se “Aula de Matemática”, “Madrugada” e “Dinheiro em Penca”, genial parceria de Tom & Cacaso. Apenas uma faixa foi registrada no Rio: “Turma do Funil”, com arranjo de João Donato."
