Gato Barbieri, now legally blind from the effects of macular degeneration, has had to cancel his upcoming engagement (Oct. 5-8) at Iridium Jazz Club, NYC, due to illness.

Lois Roe, editor of El Pampero, the Official Gato Barbieri Newsletter, said: “We know that many of you travel some distance and make special arrangements in order to see Gato in concert and we are sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience this late cancellation may cause you.

As always, Gato appreciates your longstanding and enthusiastic support and I know will appreciate your understanding as he recuperates. We know that many of you will be concerned and would like to let you know that Gato is resting comfortably at home.

Best wishes and thank you for your support of Gato."
