"It's been rumored that the Great American Songbook is making a comeback. As far as I'm concerned, it never left.”
John Pizzarelli has had a multi-faceted career as a jazz guitarist, vocalist and bandleader. Internationally known for classic standards, late-night ballads, and the cool jazz flavor he brings to his performances and recordings, he has recently established himself as the consummate entertainer and radio program host with the launch of "Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli" a nationally syndicated radio program co-hosted with his wife, Broadway star Jessica Molaskey. A frequent visitor to The Shedd Institute, John has, in our opinion, been away far too long! We're pleased to have him back.
