JOHN PIZZARELLI LIVE AT BIRDLAND SACD
This SACD will play on all 2 channel (stereo) SACD players.
Jazz vocalist and guitarist John Pizzarelli’s cool and classy live performances have earned him an army of fans who can’t get enough of his hip, intelligent style. This specially priced 2-CD set, Live at Birdland, celebrates the 10th anniversary of the John Pizzarelli Trio (with brother Martin Pizzarelli on bass and Ray Kennedy on piano), one of the tightest ensembles around.
Jazz standards, sentimental ballads, bouyant pop, Live at Birdland has it all. On this unique 2-disc set, John Pizzarelli’s gifts as a musician, entertainer and disciple of Nat King Cole are a match for any of today’s jazz-pop musicians.
"Like (Nat King) Cole, Pizzarelli is a singing instrumentalist whose vocals are deeply invested with the facile phrasing and sophisticated musicality of an artist who has spent many years mastering both the complexities and subtleties of his instrument."
