Wikipedia : This day (April 6, 1960), in Paterson, New Jersey, is born John Pizzarelli, Jr., an American jazz guitarist and vocalist, son of Bucky Pizzarelli.

Official Web Site : After playing in pickup groups and garage bands through high school he began exploring jazz with his father as a teenager, and was able to perform with a number of great jazz musicians who would be a major influence on his work, including Benny Goodman, Les Paul, Zoot Sims, Clark Terry and Slam Stewart.

The John Pizzarelli Fan Page : I was 25 and living in my own apartment and made income by doing little gigs. On Monday night, I’d go to a restaurant and set up my amp and a mic stand and just play in the corner and hardly anyone would listen. On Tuesday, I’d go somewhere else. On weekends I’d do a wedding or I’d go somewhere with my father and make a lot of money. It would be like, ‘Wow… $500! What a night!’ Suddenly, I realized I had a bank account. I don’t know how it happened!

@last.fm : John Pizzarelli has recorded as a bandleader for RCA, Chesky, Stash and Novus, and in 1997 appeared in the Broadway musical Dream, a revue of Johnny Mercer songs. Along the way, Pizzarelli and his band have earned rave reviews. Reviewers often compare the Pizzarelli Trio to jazz icons such as Nat “King” Cole: “The John Pizzarelli Trio has never been tighter, and Pizzarelli himself has never been looser,” said The Village Voice of a recent New York show. “We can say we’re as lucky to listen to as Nat Cole fans were in the years before he became a legend.”
