Jazz Saxophonist   


Rockledge, Florida


Fred Cavese plays your favorite classic melodies on the saxophone!

Jazz, swing, latin, contemporary, ballads ... 

Smooth sounds for your next personal or corporate event!

Need Live Music for Your Next Event?

From Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, to Frank Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim, to Billy Joel and Spyro Gyra... My saxophone performances ​blend classic melodies from the Great American Song Book with contemporary (60s/70s/80s) selections.  I'm talking about swing, classic/light jazz, bossa nova, and soft rock/pop tunes... the songs that inspire toe-tapping and bring back memories.

Averaging 100+ gigs per year, I regularly perform for civic, corporate, public, and private event audiences ranging from a dozen to several hundred, with a volume kept to a level that allows conversation and a pleasant ambience.  My music is exceptionally well suited for luncheons, dinners, receptions, and cocktail parties.  

With my tenor, alto, soprano (and sometimes sopranino) saxes combined with professional backing tracks on a premium Bose sound system, I can give you the sound of a jazz ensemble for the price of a solo musician.   I encourage you to check out my videos on this website for live performance samples.

If you're looking for hard rock, country, hip hop, funk, fusion, new wave, electric dance, or similar genres... keep looking.  I'm not your entertainer.  But if you're looking for smooth saxophone sounds on melodies that have never gone out of style, I welcome the opportunity to perform for your next event...  

Music that makes you smile!
