Johnny Frigo and Oscar Brown, Jr. Days in Chicago


Sign in to view read count
Chicago jazz vocalist Spider Saloff convinced Mayor Richard M. Daley and the City of Chicago to honor two of the windy cityís living music legends during her upcoming April series featuring the works of Chicagoís Great Songwriters - and the city complied! Thursday, April 29th will be “Johnny Frigo Day" while Friday, April 30th will be “Oscar Brown, Jr. Day".

The two internationally hailed jazz greats responded with memorable comments when Ms. Saloff called last week to inform them. After a long hearty laugh, Oscar Brown Jr., the 78 year-old High Priest of Hip, said “Thatís wonderful! And so soon!" while legendary jazz violinist Johnny Frigo (aged 88) opined “Well wonít that be something! Thatís what - a Thursday?? Oh I have a gig that night...I guess I better sub out."
