YouTube Watch Party honors the late Bucky Pizzarelli (1926-2020)

The New Jersey Jazz Society mourns the passing of our friend and NJ jazz great, Bucky Pizzarelli, and extends its deepest condolences to the Pizzarelli family.

A review of Bucky's life and legacy will be posted on our website along with those of the other great musicians who we have recently lost.
As his son John requested on Facebook today, if you want to do Bucky a favor, please consider contributing to the Jazz Foundation of America to support musicians during these difficult times.
