We’re sad to have missed the annual Jazz Education Network conference this year… the second week of January just isn’t the same without it! We’ll look forward to seeing all of our friends again in 2022 but in the meantime enjoy this clip of Wayne Wilkinson and our own Jackson Evans jamming over “Ain’t Misbehavin'” in the booth at the 2020 conference in New Orleans.
We are proud to call Bucky Pizzarelli one of our oldest friends but sad to be celebrating his birthday this year without him. He will certainly continue to inspire and live on through all the great music he made over the course of his nearly 95 years.
Follow this link to hear a 2010 interview with Bucky on Piano Jazz with guest host (and not-so-distant relative), John Pizzarelli.
Huge thanks to Jazz Guitar Today for these incredible interviews with Damon Mailand and Bob Benedetto talking mostly about Damon’s role since Bob’s retirement! Click the link and scroll around to enjoy the great video interviews, pictures, and additional insights!
We plan to continue ringing in the new year with (almost) weekly video posts here and on YouTube. Several months ago we posted a duo version of “My Little Boat” but thought you might enjoy the full band doing it! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
