BUCKY PIZZARELLI has been a fixture in jazz and the studios since the early 1950s, and is a self-taught master of the seven-string guitar. He toured with Vaughn Monroe before and after a stint in the military. In 1952, Pizzarelli joined the staff of NBC and 12 years later he switched to ABC; in addition, he worked with the Three Sounds (1956-1957) and had several tours with Benny Goodman. In the 1970s he was more active in jazz, co-leading a duo with George Barnes and working with Frank Sinatra, Zoot Sims, Bud Freeman, and Stéphane Grappelli, among many others. BUCKY PIZZARELLI and FRIENDS will appear in concert at MusicLAB on March 4, 2017 with long time performance partner Ed Laub, a locally renowned guitarist and vocalist whose style has been compared to a blend of Kenny Rankin, Chet Baker and James Taylor. Born in northern Bergen County, New Jersey in 1952, Ed Laub has in recent years been the steady partner to his childhood teacher, idol and close friend, BUCKY PIZZARELLI. They now travel all over the metropolitan area and major cities in the US, playing in clubs, concert venues and jazz festivals. All About Jazz Magazine said, “Pizzarelli is the complete jazz musician and Laub complements him perfectly!” Bucky and Ed will be joined by Bucky’s son Martin Pizzarelli, a great bassist and brilliant the young violinist Aaron Weinstein.
