World-renowned guitarist and singer, John Pizzarelli was hailed by the Boston Globe for "reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz." Sir Paul McCartney himself asked Pizzarelli to reimagine and rerecord his own songs, and Midnight McCartney is the joyous result. The John Pizzarelli Quartet will perform the new album composed of his superlative arrangements of classic McCartney tunes like "Silly Love Songs," "No More Lonely Nights," "My Valentine" and "Hi Hi Hi."
