Bucky Pizzarelli

Bucky Pizzarelli is a superior guitarist who swing musicians in particular appreciate. Bucky Pizzarelli has been a fixture in jazz and the studios since the early '50s. Bucky and I worked together in 1994 at The Main Street Jazz Festival in Columbia, South Carolina. Bucky always lines up guitarists for the festival. Through him I've been able to play with many great guitarists (Mundell Lowe, Charlie Byrd, and Bucky). Bucky's son, John Pizzarelli, Jr., has also been a regular at the festival.
