It is my second time at the Catalina Bar and Grill and saw Oleta Adams for the second time here. She is very special to me. I love her music and she has a beautiful soul. Oleta I love You!

A fun show with lots of memories.

A great club but food is a little expensive & not very good.

Great singer and stylist but I've seen her give better show. Also, the show started 30 minutes late. I don't know if that was her call or the club's, but 30 minutes is too long.

Jane is one of sexiest & best singers around. Show was a delight. The Catalina is a great room but service & attitude could be improved.

Very different. It was a story concert. Nellie is always good but this was a little strange.

I have long wished to see Roberta Gambarini, and although I really enjoyed her performance, I thought her dressing like the young ingenue, distraced from her overall performance. She's a classy lady, and I'm no prude, I just thought she should...continued

I took my fiance and two grown daughters to experience Buddy Rich. This was sort of an ad hoc affair, that at this level of musician ship turned out to be somewhat spotty. The BR stand in was an amazing drummer, but looked like something out of...continued

Surprisingly eclectic and entertaining evening showcasing a wide range of songs both comedic and serious. Lots of off-kilter humor. It's nice to see a show where you really don't know what's coming at you next, and it all turns out to be good....continued

Happy new mother Jane Monheit was in top form at the Catalina Bar and Grill on Sunday night. Ending her second 1 hour set with "Over the Rainbow," she has one the finest voices in jazz today. I look forward to her returning to Los Angeles soon. ...continued

I made it to Chick Corea's great final show at Catalina Bar & Grill Sunday night, which didn't actually start until 10:30. I heard he had packed the house 2 shows a night for a week. The maitre d' sat me at a table right next to Marcus Gilmore's...continued

I saw Dick Gregory and Mort Sahl at the Catalina Jazz Club on Sunday night. Dick Gregory on Friday night said about Michael Jackson, “Where else but in America could a poor black child from Gary, Indiana grow up to be a rich white man?” He left...continued

Saturday night I had the pleasure of hearing Rita Moreno sing for the first time at Catalina's Jazz Club. The 79 year old Moreno hasn't performed in over half a year, and recently had knee replacement surgery, so she was sitting down during her...continued

The Ravi Coltrane Quartet performed such a great hour and a half set at Catalina Bar and Grill on Sunday night, that it might have sent out just the right vibrations for the 'Curiosity' rover's perfect landing on Mars an hour after the show.

This is the 5th straight year end we've attended one of Jane Monheit's packed shows at the Catalina Bar & Grill. Jane has always had a beautiful voice and it just keeps getting better. As long as she keeps returning here, we'll keep the...continued
