I was blown away by the magical voice of John Pizzarelli. All of the musicians in John's jazz quartet were outstanding. Fuller played the keys and did an awesome job - wow his chops...and the bass player being John's brother just melted in to John's guitar licks...both so good.
The venue was amazing and the weather just perfect. I would do it again in a minute. Just want you to know that you will hear wonderful music of Nat King Cole...and many of the Rogers & Hart tunes. This was a great time.
Jazz guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli brings his distinctive smooth style to the Summer Pops, singing classic standards and late-night ballads. The program is packed with bossa nova rhythms and jazzy tributes to Richard Rodgers, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, plus Pizzarelli's own acclaimed compositions.
