John Pizzarelli – My Blue Heaven {Chesky} “digital dL_2_cd”


Review by Scott Yanow ~allmusic.com
Just prior to signing with RCA/Novus, John Pizzarelli recorded two sets for Chesky that featured him playing in the swing style that he would soon make quite popular. Although joined by all-stars (pianist Dave McKenna, bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Connie Kay, his father, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, and flugelhornist Clark Terry) rather than his regular trio, Pizzarelli’s likable vocals and relaxed guitar solos are not overshadowed. In fact, this is a delightful date, with memorable renditions of such songs as “I’m An Errand Boy for Rhythm,” “Lady Be Good,” “The Best Man,” “Gee Baby Ain’t I Good to You” and “Candy.” Easily recommended to John Pizzarelli fans.
