After 30+ Years, Contemporary Jazz Saxophonist Leo Casino Continues to Move People

The irrepressible Grammy-nominated saxophonist and composer, filmmaker, actor, model and activist reaches people through his music, life experience—and soul
Leo Casino’s soulful, passionate sax has a way of reaching people. Not some people, but all people. Gabe Berman, Miami Herald reporter, described one of his recent performances at Mardi Gras Gaming this way: "…he's belting out Sweet Home Chicago. Passersby stop in their tracks to dance. Valet parkers pop out of their office to shake a leg. Two priests chatting at a table jump to their feet. Small children and old-timers sway to the beat. This scene could be cut-and-pasted into the movie The Blues Brothers." But this isn’t some chance event. It’s been a common occurrence at every one of Leo Casino’s performances over the past 30+ years.

Even former President Bill Clinton is a fan, writing Casino a personal note: "Leo, your new CD is really smoking."
