Update Don Aliquo + Follow

Primary Instrument: Saxophone

Steeped in Pittsburgh’s rich jazz tradition, saxophonist Don Aliquo grew up listening to and learning from jazz legends. Following in the footsteps of his father, a well-respected jazz artist himself, Don spent his formative years performing with many of the region’s greats including Joe Harris, Danny Conn Johnny Costa, David Budway, and Jeff Watts. His musical development continued at the Berklee College of Music, where he played in the International Dues Band directed by Phil Wilson. George Garzone, Joe Viola, Ed Tomasi and John La Porta were instrumental in his artistic growth at Berklee.

Don’s early professional career included tours as lead alto with the Tommy Dorsey Band directed by Buddy Morrow, and as a baritone saxophonist with the legendary drummer Buddy Rich. He also toured extensively with the East Coast R & B group, Billy Price and the Keystone Rhythm Band, recording, writing horn arrangements, and performing as a soloist.

After these expanding and maturing experiences, Don’s career took two crucial turns. He began performing and recording with Roger Humphries, the legendary Horace Silver drummer, while furthering his musical development at Duquesne University.

Under the direction of master-composer John “Doc” Wilson, Don completed a master’s degree in performance summa cum laude, discovered a love for teaching as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and earned multiple honors and awards.
