SAXQUEST Free Concert Artist Series – FRANK CATALANO Saturday 11/4

When: 2014-11-08

Frank Catalano at SaxquestSaxquest is thrilled to host a FREE clinic/performance at the shop this Saturday with multi-Grammy award winning saxophonist, Frank Catalano (Saturday Nov. 8 from 2-PM). Frank is a super high energy jazz tenor saxophonist based out of Chicago and is a Yamaha endorsing artist. We’re billing this as Frank’s St. Louis CD Release Party! His new record “Love Supreme Collective” has topped the iTunes Charts for several weeks. “Love Supreme Collective” is an homage to John Coltrane and features Jimmy Chamberlin (Smashing Pumpkins), Percy Jones (Brand X), Chris Poland (Megadeath), and Adam Benjamin (Kneebody). Frank’s Savoy/Columbia recording “Bang!” debuted at #12 on the Billboard Jazz Charts. Frank’s recording, “Mighty Burner” was on the Billboard Charts for 20 straight weeks.

Now 37, Catalano came on the scene as a teenager and had 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 all 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.

This performance/clinic is supported by both D’Addario/Rico and Yamaha. We’re excited to celebrate our 1 year anniversary as a Yamaha dealer this Fall! We’ve enjoyed dealing in Yamaha’s high-end woodwinds this past year and continue to stock a good selection of Yamaha instruments here in the store. We’re also happy to share with you the new D’Addario Jazz Select mouthpiece. One of the best straight ahead jazz mouthpieces on the market today. As a Yamaha and D’Addario Artist, Catalano will also be happy to talk more about these instruments and accessories while he’s here.

Frank will be backed by St. Louis musicians Adam Maness on piano, Ben Wheeler on bass and Tony Barbata on drums. Remember our enthusiasm to continue hosting these events is entirely dependent on your interest!! I hope to see you out this Saturday. Please tell everyone you know.

Saturday Nov 22 – 2PM-4PM – JEFF COFFIN & the Mu’tet (unplugged)
