It’s All Here on Radio Deluxe
CHRISTOPHER LOUDON, JAZZ TIMES
"Among radio's greatest pleasures is each weekly installment of Radio Deluxe, two hours of great jazz and smart, sassy repartee from John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey, the hippest husband-and-wife team since Louis Prima and Keely Smith. "
Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli has enjoyed visits by many memorable guests since its first show on December 3, 2005. Regis Philbin dropped by on Christmas weekend; Janis Siegel, of the Manhattan Transfer, brought biscotti; Margaret Whiting broke into a live song about her "Uncle Johnny" Mercer; Liza loved what John and Jessie had done with the apartment; Keely Smith told about being engaged to Frank Sinatra; and Stacey Kent revealed her favorite ski resorts and why none of them are in Holland. Other guests have been Tony Danza, Steve Tyrell, Kenny Rankin, Peter Cincotti, Ann Hampton Callaway, and of course, the members of the John Pizzarelli Quartet, along with daughter Madeline Pizzarelli and her grandfather, Bucky Pizzarelli.
Before a Live Audience (10/18/14)
Portions of today’s program were recorded before a live audience. John picks up his guitar and plays for Jessica (an audience of one) to illustrate the concept of the 7-string guitar. He also plays a never-before-heard recording of him and the Swing Seven doing a lesser-known Johnny Mercer song live at Birdland. Besides Mercer, John & Jessica also turn the spotlight on songwriters Dave Frishberg, Neil Young, and Johnny Rotella.
