17-02-2018 12:00:00 17-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York John Pizzarelli | 8:00 PM John Pizzarelli, is a world-renowned guitarist and singer, 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." Established as one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Pizzarelli has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim and Lennon-McCartney. His themed shows, often performed with his wife Jessica Molaskey, suggest there is no limit to Pizzarelli's imagination or talent. The next step is introducing the solo work of Paul McCartney to his audience through his September 18, 2015 release on Concord Records, Midnight McCartney, and on stages around the world. The challenge, Pizzarelli says, is lining up the lesser-known McCartney songs alongside the works of Gershwin, Berlin and Rodgers. "It's not out of the realm to say, 'Here are some excellent songs. What you just enjoyed and maybe thought was Johnny Mercer, is really Paul McCartney.' I think they can all stand next to each other." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=269448 The Madison Theatre The Madison Theatre
