January 3 & 4 @ 7pm and 9:45pm.
Sponsored by Drambuie Nights.

Signed to Chicago’s Delmark Records as a teenaged-native-son-protégé of
Von Freeman, the now 41-year-old Frank Catalano has become a distinctive
improviser, prolific composer, patented inventor, brand ambassador, and
unparalleled collector of vintage saxophones. With his distinctive voices,
both in speech and on saxophone, Frank exudes infectious enthusiasm. He
has been described as a traveling locus of creative energy -- seemingly
interested in, and good at everything.

Frank’s early professional career was marked by an accident in which the
middle finger of his right hand was severed then reattached. He had to
re-learn the saxophone, sparking a stylistic expansion from his
Chicago-school roots to being featured in bands across the jazz and pop
spectrum on recordings by Jennifer Lopez, Destiny’s Child, John Legend,
and Seal.

After stints recording for Savoy Records and producing records for
Columbia, Frank landed at Rope-a-dope where his four Billboard Jazz Chart
topping recordings featured jazz-playing rock stars including drummer
Jimmy Chamberlain from the Smashing Pumpkins and saxophonist David
Sanborn.

Frank endorses Yamaha saxophones, Rico reeds, JodyJazz mouthpieces, and
Reunion Blues gig bags. As a featured brand Ambassador for Drambuie, Frank
has cocktails such as, “The Catalano Sidecar,” named for him at bars and
restaurants all over the USA. Frank’s Chicago residency at the famous
Green Mill as well as tour dates throughout the world are detailed on his
