Thursday, August 8, 2019 at 8pm
 
Payomet favorite and world-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has established himself as a prime contemporary interpreter of the Great American Songbook and beyond– for this show he will be returning to his roots to honor his hero, the legendary jazz/pop vocalist and pianist Nat King Cole, whose centennial is being celebrated around the world this year with various concerts, books and recordings. "For Centennial Reasons" completes an epic trio of Pizzarelli albums saluting Cole, starting with one that put him on the map as an influential jazz guitarist and singer in 1994, and continuing five years later with an album that cemented his legacy.
 
Pizzarelli has been hailed by The Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Toronto Star pegged him as “the genial genius of the guitar.” And The Seattle Times saluted him as “a rare entertainer of the old school.”
