John Pizzarelli Trio
The son of acclaimed jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, John Pizzarelli follows in his father’s footsteps by bringing the rich traditions of the Great American Songbook to a new generation of listeners. Far from being content merely to repackage nostalgia, the younger Pizzarelli broadens the scope of the jazz canon by drawing modern songwriters into his repertoire, a gentle reminder that the jazz standards of today were once the pop hits of yesteryear. Thanks to his unique voice and his subtle touch on the guitar, Pizzarelli has risen to prominence as a bandleader. Meanwhile, as a sideman, he has worked with A-listers such as the late Rosemary Clooney and James Taylor. For all those potential Valentine’s Day Casanovas out there looking to make their night a memorable one, take note: John Pizzarelli might just be your new best friend.
