This week, let's look at a couple of clips featuring Chicago saxophonist Frank Catalano, who will be in St. Louis to perform on September 30 at The Gramophone as part of the Tuesday night series the club is co-presenting with Jazz St. Louis.
The first video shows Catalano and his band doing his original composition Funky Dunky" at the Cotton Club in Tokyo, Japan, while the second clip finds him back on home turf, playing Mighty Burner" at the famous Chicago nightspot the Green Mill. No word yet as to who will be playing with Catalano on his St. Louis gig, but we can tell you that the Tuesday night shows at The Gramophone begin at 9:00 p.m., and that they're free, with no cover or admission charge.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
