John Pizzarelli, the world-renowned jazz guitarist and singer, was called "Hip with a wink" by Town & Country, "madly creative" by the LA Times and "the genial genius of the guitar" by The Toronto Star. After his smash success with the Boston Pops, he was hailed by the Boston Globe for "reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz." Before a recent show in the northwest, the local paper quipped "John Pizzarelli is so impossibly cool, he shouldn't be legally allowed to enter Oregon!" — a genuine quality you may have noticed in the popular casino TV ads that featured him. John used to play at the Towne Crier with his father, jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, when John was starting out. It's great to have John back now that he's made a name for himself!
