Frank Basile Quartet

Wednesday, June 07
9pm - 1am

Since moving to New York in 2001, Frank Basile has established himself as one of New York’s most in-demand baritone saxophonists. Dubbed a “prized sideman” by The New Yorker, Basile has been been called upon to perform with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band, the Jimmy Heath Big Band, the Bob Mintzer Big Band, the Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra, the Joe Lovano Nonet, the Count Basie Orchestra, the Duke Ellington Orchestra, the Christian McBride Big Band, the Dave Holland Big Band, among others. Basile has released six recordings as a leader including his most recent effort "Two Part Solution" which is co-led with tenor saxophonist Sam Dillon. In addition to his activities as a sideman, Basile leads his own quartet, quintet and sextet, which perform regularly throughout the city.
