John Pizzarelli Trio and the Big band

Special guest: Bucky Pizzarelli and Johnny Frigo
New York never sounded better than with crooner-guitarist John Pizzarelli singing its charms in a Théâtre Maisonneuve transformed for the occasion into a swinging 1940s cabaret. Bucky Pizzarelli, the famous guitar of Benny Goodman's big bands and the father of the family, is coming along for the ride, and so is a faithful trio (with brother Martin on double bass), a 12-piece brass band, and the celebrated 84-year-old violin veteran Johnny Frigo. Music takes the place of honour as the charming Pizzarelli delivers a few songs from his most recent album, Hit That live, Jack!, as well as Sinatra classics, romantic ballads, and demonstrations of his one-of-a-kind technique on a guitar he handles much like a banjo.
