The genial genius of the guitar

—The Toronto Star 

Back by popular demand! Hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz,” world-renowned jazz guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli is a Quick Center favorite who consistently sells out his performances here. Pizzarelli has recently released a new album, Better Days Ahead: Solo Guitar Takes on Pat Metheny, making this return even more special.

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.
