John Pizzarelli
John Pizzarelli  Biography

John Pizzarelli has cultivated a winning career by singing classic standards and late-night ballads and playing sublime and inventive guitar that has won over a new audience ready to swing and swoon. Using greats like Nat "King" Cole and Frank Sinatra and the songs of writers like Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen as touchstones, Pizzarelli is among the prime revivalists of the popular American songbook, bringing to his work the cool jazz flavor of his brilliant guitar playing.

Pizzarelli has been playing guitar since age six, following in the tradition of his father, jazz guitar great Bucky Pizzarelli. Hanging out with his father, John was exposed to all the great jazz music of the era, from Erroll Garner and Les Paul to Django Reinhardt. At 20, he began playing with his father. Then, he went out on his own, and since 1992, the Pizzarelli Trio has toured Europe and the United States extensively. In 1993, they received the honor of opening tour dates for Frank Sinatra and joined in the celebration for Sinatra's 80th birthday at Carnegie Hall.

Along the way, Pizzarelli has earned rave reviews. "The John Pizzarelli Trio has never been tighter, and Pizzarelli himself has never been looser," the Village Voice said of a recent 1998 New York show. "We can say we're as lucky to listen to (Pizzarelli) as Nat Cole fans were in the years before he became a legend."
