Joe Diodato is an Italian Jazz Vocalist and Composer. In 2018 he moved to London, he formed a Trio and started gigging in many London's venues and clubs. A few months later, Joe formed a Quartet and in June 2019 he released his first EP “Ma’ Groove": It combines classic and modern jazz with contemporary funk and soul, and was influenced by Joe’s collaboration with emerging artists from the South East London jazz scene.
Joe has become a household name in many of London's top venues, including Vortex Jazz Club, Ninety One Club, Spice of Life, JazzTrain, Karamel, Oliver's, Luna Lounge, Buenos Aires Cafe, Prince of Greenwich, Hand of Glory, Clapton Hart and others.
Joe models his practice on many of his influences such as Kurt Elling, Mark Murphy, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Roy Hargrove, Chet Baker, Jamiroquai, Pino Daniele and many more.
His music combines classical and modern jazz with contemporary funk and soul: a mix of Joe's original compositions, which lyrics are in English, Spanish, Italian and standards from the American Songbook, the South-American Latin jazz repertoire, the Classical Neapolitan and Italian Songbook.
