"I purchased a leather curved sop gig bag a few months ago and use Reunion Blues for all my saxes and I just purchased a Leather snare, cymbal and stick bag for my drums in my studio and I couldn't be happier."
Frank Catalano is the only known saxman to have 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 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, Destinys Child, and John Legend. He recently performed live on the Oprah Winfrey TV show with singer/composer Seal.
No stranger to adversity, Frank lost his right middle finger in an automobile accident. After several surgeries and much effort, Catalano relearned his signature technique, making him one of the most in-demand musicians today. He regularly donates his musical services to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Also an entrepreneur, Frank has patented a devise that allows him to control his saxophone via midi components. Frank is a spokesperson/clinician/performing artist for companies such as Yamaha, Rico/DAddario, and JodyJazz. He can be seen in their Print Ads worldwide. Catalano's songs have been used in the ad campaigns of Motorola, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Budweiser as well as numerous TV and Film productions.
