To all of my Bucky Pizzarelli Groupies!!
Shanghai Jazz presents Guitar Legend BUCKY PIZZARELLI Wednesday, August 29, 2012!
"For more than six decades, the legendary Bucky Pizzarelli has had a stellar career. “The complete jazz musician”, he was a fixture in jazz and the studios since the early ‘50s. The list of big bands and vocalists with whom Bucky has performed and recorded reads like a veritable Who's Who of Jazz. One of the era's most solid rhythm players, Pizzarelli was in high demand, playing and touring with Benny Goodman, Zoot Sims, Bud Freeman, and Stephane Grappelli, and, later, recording with George Van Eps, Carl Kress and George Barnes. His superior mastery of the seven-string guitar is unparalleled. The beloved guitarist has developed a very personal style that sets him apart."
We'll meet at the bar around 6:45 as the show runs from 7-10:30 with a break. When you RSVP, kindly let me know if you will be having dinner as well. As always, free parking behind the building.
Looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday.
