John Pizzarelli at Madison Theatre NY!
Madison Theatre Presents John Pizzarelli! A portion of your ticket will be donated directly to raise funds for HELP Primary School – HELP Uganda.
John Pizzarelli, is a world-renowned guitarist and singer, hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Toronto Star pegged him as “the genial genius of the guitar.” And the Seattle Times saluted him as “a rare entertainer of the old school.”
Established as one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Pizzarelli has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim and Lennon-McCartney. His themed shows, often performed with his wife Jessica Molaskey, suggest there is no limit to Pizzarelli’s imagination or talent.
The next step is introducing the solo work of Paul McCartney to his audience through his September 18, 2015 release on Concord Records, Midnight McCartney, and on stages around the world. The challenge, Pizzarelli says, is lining up the lesser-known McCartney songs alongside the works of Gershwin, Berlin and Rodgers.
“It’s not out of the realm to say, ‘Here are some excellent songs. What you just enjoyed and maybe thought was Johnny Mercer, is really Paul McCartney.’ I think they can all stand next to each other.”

Rick Braun and Richard Elliot at Madison Theatre
Madison Theatre Presents Rick Braun and Richard Elliot!
The gifted, but humble Jazz trumpet player, Rick Braun, is consistently on the top of the charts. With his collection of No. 1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz charters and his radio hits during his solo career, it’s no wonder why. Combining forces with saxophonist Richard Elliot, they created a new record called RnR, which cleverly stands for R(est) (a)n(d) R(elaxation). Some of these songs include: “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Curve Ball,” “Sunday Night,” “Que Paso,” and “Da JR Funk.” Just like the album’s namesake, RnR is all about leisure.
With great performances emanating from both Braun and Elliot, RnR is exciting and lively, yet warm, sexy, and mellow. It is in this experimental way that you begin to grasp the depth of their combined signature sounds and the impact it will have on their devoted and new fans alike.
