Jazz it up with the “genial genius of the guitar,” John Pizzarelli, and his trio as they put a fresh spin on classic pops and late-night ballads. Joined by Larry Fuller on piano, brother Martin Pizzarelli on bass and Tony Tedesco on drums, Pizzarelli will have you swinging to hits from the Rogers/Hart canon including Song in My Heart and Johnny One Note. Benny Goodman tunes Sing Sing Sing and Stompin at the Savoy are sure to get you up on your feet. Throw in a smattering of Duke Ellington, a tribute to Les Paul and a trip down Route 66, and this is one performance that will definitely be Easy to Remember!
