The work of Richard Rodgers dominated the 20th century American stage musical, and in this century his collaborations with the lyricists Lorenz Hart and, later, Oscar Hammerstein II, still occupy the core of the Great American Songbook. On With a Song in My Heart, guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli presents a dozen pieces by this formidable composer. The results run the gamut from light and breezy renderings to interpretations that can bring a tear to your eye. Veteran Don Sebesky’s effective horn arrangements lend punch to a number of cuts, including “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “This Can’t Be Love,” and the title track. Pizzarelli’s father, the guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, brings his light touch to a spare version of “It’s Easy to Remember,” and the Brazilian pianist and arranger César Camargo Mariano appears on a bossa nova-ized “Happy Talk.” (Pizzarelli also nods toward Brazilian music on “Johnny One Note,” where he references Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “One Note Samba.”) The closer, “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught,” features a solo Pizzarelli doing a straightforward and moving version of this gem from South Pacific.
With a Song
John here presents a lovely album, rich in standards and perfect for a cappucino on a crisp fall morning or glass of deep red on a cool autumn night. He brings to the guitar the grace of his father and a smoky, crisp voice that warms the heart, Enjoy!!!!
Comes from good stock and it shows
John Pizzerelli is like a throw back in time when music was better, especially Jazz. I recently had the pleasure of listening to John perform with his dad Bucky and fantastic drummer Don Gardener at Cafe Dolce in Suffern, NY. I so much enjoyed the vibe. This album will be a great addition to my collection.
