John Pizzarelli

1960 -

Origin: United States

Recreating the romantic era of 1930s New York with a sincerity that outshines nostalgia, John Pizzarelli is one of today's most renowned interpreters of the Great American Songbook. The son of Bucky Pizzarelli, he has forged a successful career as a singer and guitar player. As a sideman, this New Jersey native has often been invited to collaborate with big names in the business, from George Shearing, to Rosemary Clooney to Natalie Cole. He has been a Festival favourite ever since his first appearance in 1992.
