Joe Fortunato was a Jazz legend in the Philadelphia music scene for over 70 years. His contribution to Jazz has always lived-up too the old standard song title cliché “It Don’t Mean a Thing . . . If It Ain’t Got That Swing.” I honestly can say that, because for more than 50 years he was my best friend and brother in the field of music and everyday life.
Joe was Born: May 5, 1930 and died of natural causes on October 28, 2011.
