The only difference between John Pizzarelli and a real ham is...

A real ham can be cured. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

After a tuneful 20 minute live studio session with Abe Beeson last week, the singer, guitarist and son of famed rhythm guitar master Bucky Pizzarelli joined us for a box lunch in the KPLU offices.

Of course he brought his guitar and serenaded us with music from the Great American Songbook and his own compositions—including his hilarious Garden State anthem I Love Jersey Best.

Knowing that Nancy was the number one Pizzarelli fangirl I made sure to alert her to this appearance. What I hadn't realized was that she and he had been corresponding for some time about food and cooking.

After lunch she, John and I stepped into a studio and recorded this Food for Thought. We had so much fun that I've made it into a two-parter.



I hope that listening, you'll feel yourself in the room with us as we all have great time chatting about food and music—but of course, mostly food.
