Arturo Sandoval is a phenomenal musician playing trumpet, piano, timbales, and singing beautifully. All the musicians were fantastic. The service was good. The food was well prepared.

I Love, Love, Love Barbara Morrison. She's the consummate entertainer. Loved her with the Big Band.

The legendary Bob James put on an amazing show! The Bass player was great as well and the Drummer was one of the best I have witnessed live!

I thought that the ambiance was just alright. The music wasn't that great. Especially compared to Jazz Clubs in New York such as the one in the Time Warner Building. Over all I wouldn't recommend this.

I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed in this show. The people that were exiting the first show were saying that we in for a treat but that wasn't the case. I don't know how long the first show was but it seems that it ran pretty long...continued

Catalina is a great place to see jazz in LA. Even better with the Gold Star discount. Because it was a slow Sunday we were able to sit 3 rows back w/o the usual ordering dinner part.

Great Musicians but lacked punch & energy.... just 1 hour concert. I saw a better Stern in the past.

Whenever Ann Hampton Callaway performs anywhere near you, please go. This woman is amazing and never disappoints. From deep sultry jazz to bright American songbook pop, her voice travels everywhere and takes the audience on a great journey with...continued

Ann Hampton Callaway was absolutely superb. What a singer with an outstanding sense of humor. Four of us went and we all enjoyed her. I did not want it to end. Look forward to seeing her again!!!!!

Great show as usual put on by John Pizzarelli. He is so talented and his humor is so enjoyable. He is the whole package. The four of us were so entertained.

My fiance and I enjoyed the show. The show had fabulous energy and the band was great. The only thing was that you could not hear the words that the singers were singing. The wonderful band was drowning them out, we wished we could have heard the...continued
