Daniel Ko playing le Petit Chicago in June

Local saxophone prodigy Daniel Ko at Le Petit Chicago on June 13, 2011. ©Brett Delmage, 2011Daniel Ko, together with drummer David Pontello and bassist Ken Kanwisher, will be playing Monday nights at Le Petit Chicago for the rest of June.

It was only a couple of years ago that Ko was escorted out of Le Petit Chicago – even though he had his mother with him and his saxophone, and had hoped to sit in with the band. His crime: he was too young (the bar is 18+).

Now with a few years, a scholarship, awards, and a CD under his belt, he's in the band.

Ko will be heading to Berklee School of Music in Boston to study jazz this fall, so you might want to hear him soon.

Search Engine will return in July.
