Pizzarelli's New CD - Bob
Ellington a la Pizzarelli - Singer/guitarist John Pizzarelli celebrates the music of Duke Ellington with his new CD, Rockin' in Rhythm, his first ever Ellington recording. Pizzarelli was still a very young man when Duke passed away in 1974, but thanks to his father, veteran guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, he would eventually learn much about jazz's most important composer. Like Ellington, Pizzarelli crafts his performances to spotlight the talents of his quartet and, on several tracks, the Swing Seven Horns arranged by Don Sebesky. .
