One of the premier interpreters of jazz standards and the great American songbook, John Pizzarelli is a world-renowned jazz guitarist with a soft voice and a charming stage presence. Inspired by artists like Frank Sinatra and Nat “King” Cole, Pizzarelli, along with his quartet, offers up cool, swingin’ takes on favorite tunes across a wide range of genres. A Grammy nominee, Pizzarelli has collaborated with everyone from the Boston Pops Orchestra to Paul McCartney, Rosemary Clooney and James Taylor, and has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman and Live with Regis and Kelly. Expect to hear selections from his brand new release, Midnight McCartney – a jazz tribute to Sir Paul’s post-Beatles career – when he hits the stage at Scullers Jazz Club in Boston.

Event Description: John Pizzarelli, is one of the most celebrated performers bringing popular standards to a whole new generation. So his latest project “Dear Mr. Sinatra” is a natural progression in a storied career that includes highly acclaimed tributes to Nat ‘King’ Cole and Antonio Carlos Jobim. His new CD, “Dear Mr. Sinatra,” pays homage to Frank Sinatra, perhaps the greatest entertainer of all time, and focuses on songs that were specifically written for “Ol’ Blue Eyes.” Early in his career Pizzarelli opened for Mr. Sinatra on tour. His father, the jazz guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli, played on many of Sinatra’s seminal recordings. Dear Mr. Sinatra is in many ways the most personal of all the Sinatra tributes available and features the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.

“Dear Mr. Sinatra,” the singer and guitarist’s first-ever Sinatra album, follows Pizzarelli’s highly-acclaimed tributes to Nat “King” Cole (“Dear Mr. Cole” and “P.S. Mr. Cole”), Antonio Carlos Jobim (“Bossa Nova”) and The Beatles (“John Pizzarelli Meets The Beatles”). Frank has always been one of my main musical influences. I love the way he transforms himself from song to song,” John comments. “In the early 1990s, I was honored to open for him with my quartet in Europe and around the states. Frank would appear in the wings during our final number, swinging and clapping and smiling. He would come onstage and cheer for us. It was an honor to play with him and we were thrilled he enjoyed our music.”

John Pizzarelli has been impressing audiences for over 25 years by singing classic standards and late-night ballads, and by playing sublime and inventive guitar. His cool jazz flavor has made him one of the prime revivalists of the great American songbook. On television he is recognized from national appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” and in the famous commercials for Foxwoods Casino. He has appeared in films like The Out-Of-Towners with Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn and has been seen on performance stages from Radio City Music Hall to the Hollywood Bowl to festivals around the globe. He has been heard, of course, on numerous recordings and now on his nationally syndicated radio program, Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli, for which he’s interviewed such stars as Tony Danza, Liza Minnelli and Regis Philbin.

Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli, the new syndicated radio show which launched recently on stations around the country, explores the Great American Songbook in a fun, fresh new way. John co-hosts with Jessica Molaskey, his wife, singing partner and foil – think of a singing Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy or a swinging George Burns and Gracie Allen. Bringing warmth, humor and that long-lost “live” feel back to radio, the show takes place in their “deluxe living room” and the conversations are relaxed, candid, and off-the-cuff. The show features “live” performances of their favorite songs and spontaneous, hilarious conversations with today’s top performers like Tony Bennett, Diana Krall and Stacey Kent, plus drop-ins from stars like Regis Philbin, Liza Minnelli and Tony Danza. They also play recordings by the icons of classic pop and jazz like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Mel Tormé, as well as recordings by the new stars of the genre like Michael Bublé, Jane Monheit and Peter Cincotti.
