Bucky Pizzarelli & Frank Vignola

A superior guitarist appreciated by swing musicians in particular, Bucky Pizzarelli has been a fixture in jazz and the studios since the early '50s. Self-taught, Pizzarelli has long been a master of the seven-string guitar. He toured with Vaughn Monroe before and after a stint in the military. In 1952, Pizzarelli joined the staff of NBC and 12 years later he switched to ABC; in addition, he worked with the Three Sounds (1956-1957) and had several tours with Benny Goodman. In the 1970s he was more active in jazz, co-leading a duo with George Barnes and working with Zoot Sims, Bud Freeman, and Stéphane Grappelli, among many others. Pizzarelli has since kept up a busy recording schedule and plays often at jazz parties. Bucky has also recorded with his son, John Pizzarelli, on an occasional basis since the early '80s, including the albums Nirvana (1995), Solos & Duets (1996), Contrasts (1999), Passionate Guitars (2001), and Generations (2007). Also in 2007 the senior Pizzarelli recorded 5 for Freddie: Bucky's Tribute to Freddie Green on the Arbors label. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Bucky is friends with my family. In fact at one point he even dated my aunt.Many years ago he came to our house and played at my 16th birthday party. He is such a joy to watch and listen to. An amazing artist
then and now.

You say Bucky was self-taught. That maybe but its not the story my family has he was taught by is uncle who also taught my Uncle Tony in Paterson New Jersey. I took my dad to see Bucky and song John a few years ago here in Rochester New York they were great. My dad has lots of stories of growing up with Bucky and Friends in the old neighborhood .

Why doesn't Bucky have a solo station? His Album Nirvana is one of the finest Jazz guitar albums ever. He plays w his son John on that one. Its smoking!

Bucky also recorded three albums with Joe Venuti. He was kind enough to autograph them when he was the honored artist at a recent jazz party in Del Mar. He still has his chops at eighty-plus years!

I saw Bucky play recently in La Jolla, he was fantastic. A few months later I saw his son John play in downtown San Diego with the San Diego Pops. Both performances were great!

Bucky should have his on bio page for Pete's sake! Frank is fabulous but Bucky's own work really deserves to stand alone.
