Album Review

John Pizzarelli is a famous swing-based guitarist in the jazz world, but Rick Haydon is known to relatively few. A jazz educator and professor of jazz guitar at Southern Illinois University, Haydon has mostly played locally but is also a talented musician. He holds his own with Pizzarelli on this good-natured and consistently swinging quartet set. Most unusual is that three of the first four songs performed by the musicians are Al Cohn compositions. The music overall includes bop, swing, and Brazilian pieces, all performed with good humor and creative ideas, making this an easily recommended set.

Jazz guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli is a technically proficient fretman with a soft voice, charming stage presence, and knack for uptempo swing. Most often performing in a trio setting sans drums, Pizzarelli has found his niche covering jazz standards and American popular song in his own urbane style. The son of journeyman swing guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, John began performing with his father at age 20 and made his recorded debut with his 1983 release, I'm Hip — Please Don't Tell My Father....
