John Pizzarelli

JOHN PIZZARELLI — A CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF NAT KING COLE

GRUNIN CENTER // 8 P.M. FRIDAY, APRIL 26; $45, $49

WHAT TO EXPECT: John Pizzarelli was always heavily influenced and inspired by the music of Nat King Cole and on his current tour he’ll pay tribute to his hero. Being the son of jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, music was a part of John Pizzarelli’s life from the time he was born. After initially performing with his father’s band, Pizzarelli eventually struck out on his own in 1992 with his band, The John Pizzarelli Trio. Some of Pizzarelli’s most popular albums include “Dear Mr. Cole,” “After Hours,” “Our Love is Here to Stay” and “John Pizzarelli Meets the Beatles.” His most recent release is “For Centennial Reasons: 100 Year Salute to Nat King Cole” and at the Grunin Center fans can look forward to hearing tracks such as “Straighten Up and Fly Right,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “Body and Soul,” “A Hundred Years From Now,” “When I Fall in Love” and “(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66.”
