Two of John Pizzarelli’s greatest influences, Frank Sinatra and the bossa nova composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, joined forces in 1967 to present a softer, sultrier side of Sinatra on the heels of ‘That’s Life’ and ‘Strangers in the Night’. Half a century later, John Pizzarelli is celebrating that unique gathering with his Concord Jazz release Sinatra & Jobim @ 50.

Call me nostalgic, but in a world that seems to admire novelty above all else, I still love big band jazz. I love all the same stuff I was attracted to right from the start…energy, sound, time, groove…edgy trumpets and old bendy blue notes…bright, aggressive trombones….well you get the picture. So before making this record, I went to my old pal an dlong-time collaborator Jean Frechette and asked him to help me make a disc we could both be proud of. It started with a marathon 2-day big-band-binge, me and him, a big pile of vinyl and CDs, and a significant quantity of more than passable hooch. At the end, shaky but otherwise unscathed, we had agreed on the sound we wanted: resonant, alive, the sound that knocked us out back in the day and made us want to play jazz…Thad Quincy, Francy Boland…like I said, nostaliga. The session was laid out so that people felt at ease and could hear each other (no headphones for the horns!) and Jean went for the bright, clear mix we wanted. After all is said and one, I hope we’ve made a record that is vibrant and swinging – and I hope all you jazz-lovers out there will enjoy listening to it! (Joe Sullivan)

“Golden Piano Hits” embodies some of the fascinating explorations that are going on right now in popular music. You’ll notice two vitally important things about this album. First, highlighting Joe’s astonishing piano artistry, is the unusually appealing orchestral background. Some selections feature string orchestra, woodwinds and an expanded rhythm section; others add an intriguing blend of trombones and Flugelhorn. All are sensitively conducted by Joe Harnell in his own brilliant arrangements. Second—and no less important— the album swings, making it as perfect for dancing as it is for exciting listening.
