    John Pizzarelli

    Lauded by The Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz”, John Pizzarelli is a world-renowned jazz guitarist, vocalist, bandleader, and awe-inspiring creative force. He has performed with the Boston Pops, at Radio City Music Hall, on popular television shows like “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and has appeared on the recordings of major pop and jazz artists including James Taylor, Kristen Chenoweth, and Rosemary Clooney.  Utterly cool and ubiquitously resonant, John Pizzarelli is a talent one must see to believe.


    This series was made possible through funding from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation with support from WMUK 102.1 FM and Adams Outdoor Advertising.
