Sign in to view read count
Café Carlyle is pleased to welcome back guitarist John Pizzarelli, who just performed a sold- out, critically lauded show with wife Jessica Molaskey which TIME placed on their list of 2014’s Ten Best Plays & Musicals. He will premiere Strictly Bossa Nova II, a new concert of bossa nova music featuring the Brazilian singer-songwriter and pianist Daniel Jobim, grandson of the seminal Antonio Carlos Jobim, April 21-May 2, 2015. Of their previous engagement, Will Friedwald of the Wall Street Journal said, “Mr. Pizzarelli and his rhythm section... renew our faith in the Jobim classics as well as the idea of sambaing up the likes of George Gershwin and Cole Porter.”

Performances will take place Tuesday - Friday at 8:45pm; and Saturdays at 8:45pm and 10:45pm. Reservations made by phone at 212.744.1600 are $100 ($150 for premium seating, $55 for bar seating) Tuesday – Thursday & the Saturday late show; and $110 ($160 for premium seating, $65 for bar seating) on Friday and Saturday. Reservations made online at ticketweb.com are $110 ($165 for premium seating) Tuesday – Thursday & the Saturday late show; and $120 ($175 for premium seating) on Friday and Saturday. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).

The evening will feature the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, as well as bossa nova renditions of classic Great American Songbook selections. In addition to playing guitar, Pizzarelli will sing alongside Jobim, joined by an ensemble of musicians including Martin Pizzarelli on bass, Duduka DaFonseca on drums and Helio Alves on piano.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
