John Pizzarelli to release Memoir in November

Sep 26 2012

Jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has written his first book entitled World on a String: A Musical Memoir, due out on November 13.  Pizzarelli, the son of jazz guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli, is a connoisseur of American song who grew up among the legends of jazz.  From teenage explorations of rock music to life on the road with his father, he worked his way from gigs in tiny clubs to opening for Frank Sinatra during his final international tour.  Now Pizzarelli performs in festivals and top venues across the United States and the world, and he shares his unique journey in this revealing, charming, and heartwarming memoir.  Among the highlights of the book, John includes firsthand stories of famous jazz greats and popular music icons including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, Benny Goodman, Joe Pass, James Taylor, and Paul McCartney.  John is currently promoting his latest album, Double Exposure, featuring his version of the Beatles hit "I Feel Fine."
