Product Description

Live at Birdland' celebrates the 10th anniversary of the John Pizzarelli Trio, featuring Ray Kennedy (Piano) Martin Pizzarelli (Bass) and the amazing John Pizzarelli (Guitar and Vocals). Having shared the stage over the years with Frank Sinatra, Rosemary

Amazon.com

This two-disc set celebrates the tenth anniversary of the John Pizzarelli Trio (with his brother Martin Pizzarelli on bass and Ray Kennedy on piano). Pizzarelli is the son of legendary guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. Taught by his father, he grew up immersed in the world of jazz, playing with Zoot Sims by the time he was twenty. He's an easily engaging singer in the manner of Nat "King" Cole, drawing on both jazz standards and well-chosen contemporary material. Recorded at the famed New York City jazz club in the autumn of 2002, Pizzarelli mixes songs old and new into one seamless whole. George and Ira Gershwin rub shoulders with James Taylor, as he takes over the songs with his own casual confidence. The smoothness of his style belies prodigious chops. His between-song patter also shows him to have all of the qualities of a well-informed host who also knows how to tell a short and funny anecdote or two. Originals by both Pizzarelli and Kennedy add further diversity to a memorable night. --David Greenberger

The latest from John Pizzarelli is pure joy. These 2 discs capture his incredible talent on the guitar, his captivating voice and his incredible sense of humor. He's as hip and quick on his feet as they come. Someone should sign him up for his own TV show -- he's a real gem. The selections are just great --he chose some of his best songs along with standards that are sensational. Ray Kennedy never sounded better -- especially on "The Gospel Truth" -- which takes your breath away. Martin Pizarelli gives the whole thing a grounding, beautiful background. And Grover Kemble swings like crazy with John on "This Castle's Rockin'. Wow. Congratulations. This is one of my favorite cds of all time.

Excellent effort here with some great contributions from the band members. John's singing is improved and his playing is impeccable. Some of the selections are puzzling, and repeated listening may improve my rating. But the venue and the crowd reaction contributed to the pleasant vibe and made this set memorable.

Pizzarelli is a great entertainer and a live CD is the best way to catch him on record. His impressions on "I Like Jersey Best" are great fun. He is a good guitarist with great chops and a good singer with a little voice. One can overlook his solo guitar section wasted on chord embellishments during "It's Only A Paper Moon" in light of his humorous patter and sensitive ballad singing. Kennedy is a melodic improviser on piano. Group chemistry is excellent. Pizzarelli's original ballads are memorable. The level of musicianship varies, but I walked away smiling.

Some songs on these CD's are OK, other's I don't care for. The musicianship is good but one person's 'music' can be another person's noise and this doesn't make the cut for one of my favorite CD's. I could also do without the introductions and talking which are a part of this 'live' recording.

It's no secret. I am a fan of John Pizzarelli. He has the guitar skills of his father combined with a comfortable (though not strong)singing voice. His interaction with the audience captures a mood and personality which makes the music jump out of your speakers and into your hearts. Like Harry Chapin, John can tell a story and keep you interested. It was wonderful to hear about his run in at the Library of Congress. But with that you get great music, and when he invites NJ local Grover Kemble (who?) onto the stage to join him, that castle starts Rockin'!
Other highlights include the original compostion of Ray Kennedy "Gospel Truth", and an extended version of the J.P.T. Standard "I Like Jersey Best" - with more versions than you've ever heard before ("In my mind. I'm going to New Jersey")...
I would encourage everyone to check out this album... Better yet, buy it!

This is just wonderful for any fan of John Pizzarelli. A player that knocks your socks off, every time you hear him. Interspersed with wit and humour, the playing is unparalleled by any other trio I can think of. I always think of John Pizzarelli as the Fred Astaire of Guitar. He brings a lightness and whimsy to everything musical that he does. Truly a class act. Anyone who buys this double CD will find it in heavy rotation on their sound system.

this has got to be my favourite album,great arrangements and very entertaining.This is one of the best trios around,Ray Kennedy is an astounding piano player, and Martin Pizzarelli is one of the most solid bass players around.Please someone tell me why John Pizzarelli isn`t a household name, he`s a rare talent. J.P swings through an assortment of standards plus his own compositions i.e the ballad "better run before it`s spring" and the "polliwog song".Both these songs are delightful and beautifully played.John`s vocals and jazz guitar are superb throughout this double album.Buy at least two albums just in case you wear one out with continuous use.
