This Wednesday, September 14th, The Jazz Gallery is proud to present a special concert celebrating guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli’s 90th birthday. Pizzarelli has had a long and storied career, performing as a member of the Tonight Show Band with Doc Severinson, touring with Benny Goodman, performing multiple times at the White House, and releasing many acclaimed records as a leader and co-leader. He continues to be a true jazz ambassador and “keeper of the flame”—his playing continues to shine a light on the enduring influence of guitarists like Django Reinhardt and Freddy Green.
For his special birthday celebration, Pizzarelli has convened a guitar-army of close friends, including Gene Bertoncini, Jack Wilkins, and Ed Laub, as well as saxophonist Harry Allen. Don’t miss this opportunity to see a true jazz master in such an intimate space.
Paul Weinstein presents Bucky Pizzarelli at 90 at The Jazz Gallery on Wednesday, September 14th, 2016. Mr. Pizzarelli, guitar, will be joined by guitarists Gene Bertoncini, Jack Wilkins, and Ed Laub, and saxophonist Harry Allen. Sets are at 7:30 P.M. and 9:30 P.M. $50 general admission ($35 for members), $60 for reserved cabaret seating ($45 for members). Performance is sold out.
