DATE: Wednesday, May 1st  |  SHOW: 8:30PM & 11:00PM  |  PRICE: $30 – $40

Birdland hang out May with two Latin Live Jazz Shows begining with The Chicago Tenor sax titan Frank Catalano, who returns to this venue being 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.

Frank’s early professional career was marked by an accident and 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.

Frank’s Chicago residency at the famous Green Mill as well as tour dates throughout the world are detailed on his website: www.catalanomusic.com

And finally, the most famous New York Jazz band: THE AFRO LATIN JAZZ ORCHESTRA will be presenting its entire repertoire during four consecutives Sundays in two sets this month. This iconic orchestra is the resident large format ensemble of the nonprofit Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) founded by Arturo O’Farrill in 2007 and dedicated to preserving the heritage of big band Latin jazz, supporting its performance for new audiences.
