John Pizzarelli, world-renowned guitarist and singer, is a prime contemporary interpreter of the Great American Songbook, with a repertoire that includes Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Frank Sinatra and The Beatles. He has been hailed by The Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and repopularizing jazz.” The Toronto Star pegged him as “the genial genius of the guitar.” (TJCHOF)

John’s “formal” musical education was held on the road with his famous father, the legendary Bucky Pizzarelli. The teaching produced great results, accelerating John’s ascendancy in the music world. Following high-profile collaborations with Sir Paul McCartney and Michael McDonald, John has created musical tributes to both Nat King Cole and, more recently, Pat Metheny. And, in addition to working with James Taylor, George Shearing, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Frigo and various orchestras, John performs with his wife, vocalist Jessica Molaskey. (TJCHOF)
