Saxophonists Catalano, Richardson
to play as part of The Gramophone's
Tuesday night jazz series

Jazz St. Louis' director of education Phil Dunlap emails with news of two upcoming performances in the Tuesday night series that JSL is co-sponsoring at The Gramophone.

The first is a show by Chicago-based saxophonist Frank Catalano, who will play at The Gramophone on Tuesday, September 30 for an event hosted by the Young Friends of Jazz St. Louis. Catalano, who has performed with many well-known musicians including Louie Bellson, Charles Earland, Tony Bennett, Tito Puente, David Sanborn, Betty Carter, John Medeski and DJ Logic, also will do a clinic for Saxquest while he's in St. Louis, said Dunlap.

Then on Tuesday, October 7, it's a double bill featuring the Bennett Wood Quartet followed by saxophonist Logan Richardson (pictured). A Kansas City native now living in New York City, Richardson has released one CD, Cerebral Flow, on the Fresh Sound New Talent label, and has performed and recorded with Joe Chambers, Stefon Harris, Greg Tardy, Nashiet Waits, and many others. According to his bio, he's also been something of a protege of St. Louis native Greg Osby, studying sax with Osby and leading a group that performed in a jazz concert series curated by Osby.

Both performances begin at 9:00 p.m. at The Gramophone, and, as is customary for the Tuesday night series, both are free, with no admission charge.
