Using performers like Nat “King” Cole, Frank Sinatra and Joao Gilberto and the songs of compos- ers from Richard Rodgers, George Gershwin to James Taylor, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Lennon & McCartney as touchstones, John Pizzarelli has established himself as one of the primeinterpret- ers of the Great American Songbook and beyond, bringing to his work the cool jazz flavor of his brilliant guitar playing and singing.
