Catalano’s instantly recognizable, powerful and dynamic tenor playing — yet at the same time nimble and thoughtful — is on full display on Bye Bye Blackbird. To stay true to his Chicago roots, the album pays homage to his heroes and mentors Von Freeman — affectionately known throughout Chicago as Vonski — and Eddie Harris.
