But as a teen growing up in the 1970s, John was far more interested in Peter Frampton and the rock band Cream than in Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of Paris. John had a real talent for jazz guitar, however, and he joined his dad in playing club dates around the New York/New Jersey area. Pizzarelli recalls his father saying that he “was the only guy playing jazz to support his rock and roll habit. All the guys had it the other way around.”</p> Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:15:37 +0000 Reese Urlich 14013 at http://kalw.org Jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli innovates within a framework
