NOTE: This interview with John Pizzarelli was first aired on WMUK in May, 2018. Our condolences to John and his family on the loss of his father, jazz great Bucky Pizzarelli, due to complications from COVID-19.
Swing guitarist/singer John Pizzarelli talks to Cara Lieurance about his early immersion in music-making at home, which led to touring with his father, jazz guitarist John "Bucky" Pizzarelli. With over twenty albums to his credit, he picks a few cuts from his latest, Sinatra and Jobim at 50, to share with listeners, as they discuss Pizzarelli's upcoming show at Bell's Eccentric Café on Friday, May 18. Michigan's Organissimo and west coast blues guitarist "Little" Charlie Baty are also set to perform.
