World-renowned jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been called “hip with a wink,” “madly creative,” and “the genial genius of the guitar.” He has also been credited with “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz” by the Boston Globe. Using performers like Nat “King” Cole and Frank Sinatra, along with the songs of composers ranging from George Gershwin to The Beatles as touchstones, Pizzarelli is one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, bringing to the music his signature style and brilliant seven-string guitar playing.
style: straight-ahead/vocal jazz
