Joe Pass of the Valley

Jazz guitarist Joe Pass apparently had prominent Valley roots, teaching out of his Northridge garage and playing memorable sets at Donte’s when the defunct club was hopping on Lankershim Boulevard. Come On, Feel the Nuys says Donte’s sessions can be heard on two CD sets, “The Joe Pass Trio Live at Donte’s” and “Resonance.”

There’s a Donte’s entry at Gone But Not Forgotten
