THE NEW OLD SOUND OF MUSIC...
He’s been referred to as Ultra Cool, and Hip with a Wink….
His name is John Pizzarelli and he has a radio show called Radio Deluxe. This two hour, upscale jazz party (taped in his Manhattan living room) is indescribable, and unforgettable. The Boston Globe hailed John as “reinvigorating the Great American Song Book.” You can check http://www.radiodeluxe.com/ for times to tune in.
I have had the distinct pleasure of seeing John (who plays guitar and sings), his wife, the ever talented Jessica Molaskey http://www.jessicamolaskey.com/, and his father, the incomparable “Bucky” Pizzarelli, http://www.buckypizzarelli.com/ perform. They are the best high-heeled entertainment out there. The New Yorker calls the Pizzarelli family the “the von Trapps on Martini’s!”
These days John and his wife Jessica are performing at the world class, five star, Carlyle hotel in New York, at Café Carlyle. For a dreamy, classy and swanky night out, all you hepcats should grab a ticket and sashay over to 35 West 76th! I am tempted to stir up a batch of Manhattan’s, and meet you there….
Here is 86 years young Bucky Pizzarelli (right) performing recently at Tanglewood. The Pizzarelli’s are keeping old school alive in the 21st century….and staying ageless every beat of the way… Bravo!
