John Pisano's Guitar Night / New CD from Mel Bay Records


Sign in to view read count
In 1997, during a series of performances at Papashon in Los Angeles, jazz guitarist John Pisano persuaded the club to begin featuring a different guitarist each week. The event became known as Guitar Night, and while the setting has since moved to Spazio, John still presides over the popular weekly series, now entering its tenth year.

John Pisano's Guitar Night, the first double CD from Mel Bay Records, features sixteen live tracks by thirteen top players, including Peter Bernstein, Corey Christiansen, Joe Diorio, Herb Ellis, Ted Greene, Scott Henderson, Pat Kelley, Larry Koonse, Frank Potenza, George Van Eps, Anthony Wilson, and Barry Zweig, with John providing accompaniment on most selections.

Street date: February 20, 2007

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
