With a lineup of superb jazz vocalists appearing throughout the Spring 2006 season, the Monterey Jazz Festival is giving Monterey Peninsula music fans plenty to sing about.

This April 7th, the Monterey Jazz Festival presents acclaimed guitarist and crooner John Pizzarelli at Carmel's historic Sunset Center. Hailed by critics as one of the most accomplished interpreters of the Great American Songbook, John Pizzarelli is known for his brilliant guitar work and smooth vocals. In a career that has produced eighteen recordings and gained international recognition, John has brought classic standards and late night ballads to a new generation ready to swing and swoon.

From appearances at Carnegie Hall to Melrose Place, John has gained a wide following from his numerous stage, screen and television appearances and is setting the standard for stylish, modern jazz. In describing his cheerful sound, the New York Times reports, “Pizzarelli's music portrays the kind of joy that sneaks up on you at odd moments when you're just walking around feeling good."

John Pizzarelli takes center stage at Sunset Center, the site of the first jazz concert presentations on the Monterey Peninsula by Monterey Jazz Festival founder Jimmy Lyons. Located on San Carlos Avenue between 8th and 10th in downtown Carmel, Sunset Center offers luxurious seating in a beautiful historic venue and parking on site.

In addition to the concert featuring John Pizzarelli, the Monterey Jazz Festival expands its traditional “Jazz at Sunset" concert series to include an intimate performance with MJF 2006 Artist-in-Residence Kurt Elling at Monterey Live on Thursday, April 20. A new, state-of-the-art performing arts venue in the heart of Monterey, Monterey Live features live music, theater, dance, comedy and spoken word seven days a week. The venue brings the excitement of exclusive “big city" theater-style clubs to Monterey with light fare and premium spirits served in an intimate and sophisticated setting.

Tickets for all MJF Spring 2006 concerts are available from the Monterey Jazz Festival Box Office (925/275-9255).
