John Pizzarelli, world-renowned jazz guitarist and singer, was called “Hip with a wink” by Town & Country Magazine, “madly creative” by The Los Angeles Times and “the genial genius of the guitar” by The Toronto Star. After his recent smash success with the Boston Pops, Pizzarelli was hailed by The Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Seattle Times called Pizzarelli “a tour de force” and “a rare entertainer of the old school.” Before a recent show in the northwest, the 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 Joao Gilberto and the songs of composers from Richard Rodgers, George Gershwin to James Taylor, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Lennon & McCartney as touchstones, John Pizzarelli has established himself as 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 and singing. The tour engagement of John Pizzarelli Quartet is funded through the American Masterpieces program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.Tickets Save

“The scion of a jazz-guitar dynasty, Pizzarelli reenvisions Richard Rodgers’s tunes through a dreamily swinging looking glass; his conversational, Nat Cole-ish vocals go down like Key lime pie. Single: ‘It’s Easy to Remember.”
