Legacy in place, Militello looks forward


Words like prodigious, prolific, astounding, and extraordinary are appropriate when describing the career of Bobby Militello.

Militello, the Buffalo-born saxophonist has played with Maynard Ferguson, The Tonight Show Band, and has been a featured soloist with the Buffalo Philharmonic and orchestras around the world. He’s recorded soundtracks for movies and TV. He’s been a restaurateur and music club owner. And of course, he played for more than 20 years with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. 

Militello is playing a concert with the Buffalo Philharmonic Friday at the First Presbyterian Church across from Kleinhans. 

Pat is a member of the Buffalo Broadcast Hall of Fame. He hosts WBFO's Weekend Blues Show from 7-11 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
