Frank Catalano and Jimmy Chamberlin’s project is done but don’t be sad, there’s a new one…
Thanks for following! You'll get any future updates.
2015 was a very exciting year for us and we have all of you to thank for it!!! Jimmy rejoined The Smashing Pumpkins. Frank toured Europe. God’s Gonna Cut You Down (Ropeadope) spent 15 weeks on the Billboard Charts. GGCYD charted strong on iTunes, CMJ, and Jazzweek and was number 1 on the Apple Music/ Downbeat list. GGCYD was voted best party album of 2015 by Nipperton. Frank and Jimmy had cover stories for Jazz Inside and Jazz Hot Magazines and had a national PBS television special.
For 2016, Frank and Jimmy have teamed up with PledgeMusic so you can pre-order the 3rd and final album of their trilogy, Bye Bye Blackbird. Every purchase will come with an MP3 album download of Bye Bye Blackbird which will be delivered April 8, 2016.
Bye Bye Blackbird is the ‘jazziest; of the trilogy which includes Part 1, Love Supreme Collective and Part 2, God’s Gonna Cut You Down. Bye, Bye Blackbird is one of Frank and Jimmy’s favorite jazz standards and features special guest alto saxophonist David Sanborn of David Bowie Young Americans, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor and Paul Butterfield Blues Band fame.
