John Pizzarelli Trio for Centennial Reasons:

100 Year Salute to Nat King Cole

Saturday, September 17th at 8 PM (New Date)

JazzTalk at 7 PM with JOEL NICHOLS

World-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Toronto Star pegged him as “the genial genius of the guitar.” And the Seattle Times saluted him as “a rare entertainer of the old school.”

John Pizzarelli

John Pizzarelli recently released his new album, For Centennial Reasons: 100 Year Salute to Nat King Cole on Ghostlight Deluxe, an imprint of Ghostlight Records. Following high-profile collaborations with Sir Paul McCartney and Michael McDonald, Pizzarelli returns to his roots to honor his hero, the legendary jazz/pop vocalist and pianist Nat King Cole, whose centennial is being celebrated around the world this year with various concerts, books, and recordings. For Centennial Reasons… completes an epic trio of Pizzarelli albums saluting Cole, starting with “Dear Mr. Cole”, which helped put Pizzarelli on the map as an influential jazz guitarist and singer in 1994, and continuing with “P.S. Mr. Cole”, which cemented his legacy five years later.
