Here’s a complete performance and venue schedule for the entire Festival.

That’s what Downbeat said about Frank Catalano. The venerable magazine continues, “Catalano is the only known saxman to have performed with Miles Davis, Randy Brecker, Charles Earland, Elvin Jones, Stan Getz, Betty Carter, Von Freeman, Tito Puente, Tony Bennett, Les Claypool and Louis Bellson while still in high school! This led to his signing to Delmark Records at age 18 and a string of critically acclaimed recordings. Catalano has been heard by millions of people all over the world thanks in part to 3 Grammy-winning and 11 Grammy-nominated recordings with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Destiny’s Child, and John Legend. He recently performed live on the Oprah Winfrey TV show with singer/composer Seal.”

Frank will be back again, donating his artistry, to play for the Chi-Town Jazz Festival at Martyrs’ on Sunday, 3/9. See you there?

Here’s how to donate and sponsor this 5th Annual Chi-Town Jazz Festival.
