JAZZ | Bobby Militello 

Bobby Militello was working his magic on saxophone and flute with the Maynard Ferguson band in the late-1970's when he caught the ear of an audience member. It was Dave Brubeck who had recently lost his long-time saxophonist Paul Desmond to lung cancer. After joining the legendary quartet in the early 1980's, Militello toured and recorded with Brubeck until the pianist's death in 2012. Anyone who witnessed his performances with Brubeck at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival can attest to Militello's prowess.

Bobby Militello performs Sunday, December 20, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. 7 p.m. $10. 292-9940; lovincup.com; bobbymilitello.com.
