JAZZ ROOTS: A Tribute to Frank Sinatra

Featuring Tony DeSare and John Pizzarelli

March 19 @ 8pm

Frank Sinatra forever changed both popular song and American pop culture. John Pizzarelli has had a multi-faceted career as a jazz guitarist and vocalist. The easy humor and prodigious technique he brings to his performances create the perfect mood for an evening celebrating the king of cool.

Tony DeSare has gained an international fan base with his infectious joy, wry playfulness, and robust musicality. With a sound that’s romantic, swinging, and sensual, DeSare was cast as the star of the long running Off-Broadway musical smash, Our Sinatra. A versatile performer, DeSare has headlined major jazz venues such as Birdland and the Blue Note; posh nightclubs including Café Carlyle and Feinstein’s at The Regency; and big band concert halls like Jazz at Lincoln Center.

DeSare also performs an evening of Johnny Mercer music, Moon River, Mercer & Me, 7:45 p.m. tonight at Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Click here for ticket information.

Feinstein has rescheduled his performance at the Arsht: He’ll sing from the The Great American Songbook on Nov. 5 when Jazz Roots opens its third season.
