Hmm, Catalpa normally has very broad leaves..

But do they ever appear narrow, maybe when young?

Yep: Catalpa in early stages.

Otherwise maybe X Chitalpa.

Hmm, the leaves do seem to resemble X Chitalpa more than Catalpa...?

"ÃÂ Chitalpa tashkentensis is a bizarre hybrid between two unlikely parents, the Catalpa bignonioides, the cigar tree, and Chilopsis linearis, the desert willow. The result is a great, relatively drought tolerant small tree that flowers from mid summer until early autumn."
