Jazz at Bickford Theatre: John Pizzarelli Quartet

Swing into spring with the John Pizzarelli Quartet. Hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook” and pegged by the Seattle Times as “a rare entertainer of the old school,” Pizzarelli sets the standard for terrific jazz. Joining John will be Konrad Paskudzki on piano, Andy Watson on drums, and Mike Kam on bass.

While John is best known as of one of the prime interpreters of the Great American Songbook, he has expanded that repertoire to include the music of Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Lennon-McCartney. His latest album, Midnight McCartney, was recorded at the request of Paul McCartney, a big fan, who asked him to interpret some of his songs in a jazz style.

John Pizzarelli is quick to tell people that no matter what he is singing or playing, his hero and the foundation for his approach to music is the great Nat “King” Cole, to whom he has devoted two albums and to whom he owes the configuration of his latest piano, bass and drums quartet. It has been said that John carries on Cole’s tradition of soft crooning, impeccable musicianship and a love a swing unlike anyone else in jazz today.
