Product Description

John Pizzarelli ~ Our Love Is Here To Stay

Amazon.com

Guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli, son and protégé of renowned guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, opens up on this 1997 release with a sophisticated set. In addition to his usual trio of brother Martin Pizzarelli on bass and Ray Kennedy on piano, Pizzarelli employs the Don Sebesky New York All Star Band on this session. That orchestra evokes rich textures with its four-trumpet, five-trombone, five-woodwind and two-French horn lineup. "Our Love Is Here to Stay" received a nomination for Best Instrumental Arrangement with Accompanying Vocals at the 1998 Grammys. Other highlights include "Dream," "Rhythm Is Our Business" and "Say Hey Kid." --John Swenson

I'm a sometimes pianist but a great appreciator of jazz. My wife is niether. But, we both love this cd. I don't think a week goes by that we don't play it at least once. And, the first month we owned it, we played it continuously. Anyone who can put over such campy songs as Avalon and Honeypie has got to be good. And Pizarrelli not only puts it over but makes me come back again and again. His engaging voice and style just make you want to smile everytime he sings. The big band back-up is also a very nice twist -- and I did not think I would like it, having heard him exclusively with small groups in the past. I own Ella, Sinatra, the Duke, Paul Simon, the Beatles and about everything in between. But this is easily one of the top five in my collection.

In my opinion, John Pizzarelli is a jazz guitarist/vocalist who deserves greater recognition. Although not a natural vocalist, he sings with a feeling of sincerity reminiscent of the crooners that were popular during the big band era. His guitar work is extraordinary. Whether the song is upbeat swing or a slow ballad, he can do it all. In upbeat charts such as "Avalon" and "Little Girl", Pizzarelli whips out bebop licks and chord riffs with blinding speed. He handles ballad chord solos and comping with such delicacy and sensitivity in such numbers as "It's Sunday" and his original composition "The Day I Found You". Don Sebesky did a masterful job of arranging the charts and conducting his big band. Popular music fans will be fascinated to hear the Beatles cover, "Honeypie", arranged as a hip, swing, big band chart. A definite keeper for jazz aficionados!!!

John Pizzarelli is an excellent jazz guitarist/vocallist, and on this album he shines. Most of the songs are performed with The Don Sebesky New York All-Star Big Band, but "The day I found you" is with his trio, and "It's Sunday" is performed solo. Included amongst the usual standards is a Lennon/McCartney song "Honeypie" and "Say Hey Kid" which John co-wrote with Don Sebesky and Ray Kennedy. Listen to guitar and piano on "Avalon"...beautiful. Makes you feel like dancing. Anyway, I could go on and on about how great every song is, and the wonderful instrumental breaks, but I won't. Just get this album and see for yourself.

Format: Audio CD
John Pizzarelli remains a remarkably talented artist who tours and produces great music to this day; and on this CD from 1997 we get some of John's earlier work that sizzles and sparks like fire! John's artistry is very, very good; and aspiring guitarists and vocalists would do well to study his work. His interpretations of classic jazz numbers and love ballads leave people breathless.

The CD track set starts with "Dream." This classic love ballad gets a swinging big band style musical arrangement from John, his brother Martin Pizzarelli on bass, Ray Kennedy on piano and the Don Sebesky New York All-Star Big Band. The end result gives us an electric interpretation of "Dream" that would make Johnny Mercer proud. John sings well as the musicians play; and his extra lyrics will charm you.

"Our Love Is Here To Stay" starts off with John singing the opening verse against a relatively sparse musical arrangement; and when the band does come in "Our Love Is Here To Stay" shines like gold! Don Sebesky's arrangement makes good use of the horns, percussion and the piano as well. Great! If you listen very closely, the band makes a few very quick key changes that serve to enhance the quality of this number. "Avalon" gets a breakneck pace but this works very well; the guitar and piano actually improve "Avalon" greatly. Watch out for that guitar solo on "Avalon!" The musical interlude rises to a stunning crescendo and then jams really hard to raise "Avalon" to new heights.

"The Day I Found You ("The Pollywog Song")" boasts a romantic, wistful melody that relies on the piano and the bass to carry the bulk of the melody. John sings with panache and a great deal of sensitivity, more so than he does on other numbers on this CD.
