Do you have affection for big-band jazz and classic pop but can't stand the cheese that tries to pass for it these days? John Pizzarelli is your man. He comes by the style honestly as the son of celebrated jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, with whom he cut his teeth as a player and performer before heading out on his own. And he's not just a guitarist of exceptional taste and agility, but a smooth-as-silk pop-jazz singer who begs comparison to the Chairman himself, Frank Sinatra. As the foremost contemporary interpreter of the Great American Songbook, he delivers swinging songs for romantic lovers that aren't mere nostalgia. Go with a loved one and expect to hit a home run, with an assist from Pizzarelli, when you get back home.
