John Pizzarelli Big Band - Sunday, January 30 at 3:00 PM
Time: 03:00 PM
Location: Quick Center for the Arts
A creation of beauty through the tragedy of the pandemic, Better Days Ahead is Pizzarelli’s first solo album in his 40-year career. In the recording’s trailer, Pizzarelli describes the album as “at once a tribute, a self-affirmation, therapy, and a memorial.” When both his parents died from Covid-19 early in the pandemic, Pizzarelli retreated to a cabin in upstate New York where he found solace in the music of legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. In Better Days Ahead, Pizzarelli takes a deep dive into Metheny’s Grammy Award-winning catalogue, deconstructing famed arrangements on his seven-string guitar in ways that will thrill not only jazz lovers but also aficionados of classical and Spanish guitar.
