College bound Jazz Cat, picking up gigs for both bills and fun
Growing up in Chicago, there is always live music. Sonny Rollins Played here last spring, and groups like Basie's Jazz Orchestra, the Mingus Big Band, the Village Vanguard, and local hit The Chicago Jazz Ensemble always play at such a high level. As a newer player, I try my hand at putting my own twist on old standards and new favorites. But sometimes the old favorites are great just the way they are. Heading off to study music is a big deal for me, and the more times I get to play when I am home in Chicago, the better. I love the bandstand, stage, and street corners where I can just pop open my case and let a melodic solo flow from my horn. Contact me if you need a saxophonist for a summer gig.
