A master of the subtle art of rhythm guitar as well as a gifted soloist, Bucky Pizzarelli, was known for his uncommonly sweet and delicate tone and disarmingly straightforward approach to melodic lines.

He became a mainstay of the New York jazz scene, often performing with his celebrated son John. Pizzarelli was among the few guitarists to play an instrument with seven strings rather than the customary six. ‘I like this album. Not only that, we both like the same ice cream. It’s sheer pleasure to hear a guitar sounding like a guitar again – Les Paul 1972.
