“a rare entertainer of the old school.” Seattle Times

World-renowned jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been called “hip with a wink,“ “madly creative,” and “the genial genius of the guitar.”  After his recent smash success with the Boston Pops, he was hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” Before a recent show in the Northwest, the local paper quipped, “John Pizzarelli is so impossibly cool, he shouldn’t be legally allowed to enter Oregon.”

Using performers like Nat “King” Cole, Frank Sinatra, and João Gilberto and the songs of composers from George Gershwin to James Taylor as touchstones, John Pizzarelli has become one of the prime interpreters of the Great American Songbook and beyond, bringing to his work the cool jazz flavor of his brilliant guitar playing.
