StLJN Saturday Video Showcase:
Frank Catalano's "Funky Dunky"
and "Mighty Burner"

This week, let's look at a couple of clips featuring Chicago saxophonist Frank Catalano, who will be in St. Louis to perform on September 30 at The Gramophone as part of the Tuesday night series the club is co-presenting with Jazz St. Louis.

The first video shows Catalano and his band doing his original composition "Funky Dunky" at the Cotton Club in Tokyo, Japan, while the second clip finds him back on home turf, playing "Mighty Burner" at the famous Chicago nightspot the Green Mill. No word yet as to who will be playing with Catalano on his St. Louis gig, but we can tell you that the Tuesday night shows at The Gramophone begin at 9:00 p.m., and that they're free, with no cover or admission charge.
