The Pizzarelli Boys consist of the family patriarch, Bucky, on acoustic guitar, sons John (electric guitar) and Martin (bass), pianist Larry Fuller, drummer Tony Tedesco, and young up-and-coming violinist Aaron Weinstein. With vocalist Jessica Molaskey (a talented Broadway actress and John's wife) added on some tracks. Executive producer Paul Hanley (actually, John and Martin are also listed as executive producers) chose the songs from among his personal favorites, including several that are rarely, if ever, heard in a jazz setting. Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" (which has achieved cult status) would seem like one of the most unpromising choices, yet the group succeeds by focusing their jam on the first half of the song and barely touching on the latter half. Gayle Caldwell (who was a member of the '60s folk group the New Christy Minstrels) penned the cheery ballad "Cycles," which features strong solos by John and Weinstein. The bulk of this release is devoted to standards that Bucky likely could have played in his sleep, including a lightly swinging "By Myself," a deliberately lyrical "Over the Rainbow," and a heartfelt "Danny Boy," the latter featuring the talented vocalist Jessica Molaskey.
