Will Donato – What It Takes

Will Donato has released his newest of four critically acclaimed CD’s. This hot new CD contains the top Billboard hit “Funkability” produced by Darren Rahn. The CD contains some of Will’s best melodies to date featuring an All-Star cast including Steve Oliver, Darren Rahn, Eddie Reddick, Blake Aaron! Order directly from Will’s Web site with his very streamlined online sales site:

This CD has been deemed as one of Will’s most compelling CD releases to date. Will’s current hit radio single “Funkability” is now in the top 20 in all the major charting and radio program listings.  According to Shannon West the back story here is that the entire project was recorded while Donato was undergoing treatment for the cancer he was diagnosed with on the day he delivered the sax tracks for “Funkability” to Darren Rahn. Maybe facing down your own mortality does push you to cut to the chase because this music is uncompromised, the musicians are playing their hearts out.
