Singer and guitarist John Pizzarelli mixes his mastery of swing and standards with an affinity for melodic pop to create thoroughly entertaining musical mash-ups. Son of the celebrated jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, John has forged a compelling career of his own, touring as an opening act with Frank Sinatra, performing with Rosemary Clooney, and starring on Broadway. John Pizzarelli joins Beyond Category host Eric Felten at Washington's Blues Alley to talk about his life in music and to perform with his quartet.
