Overview

Guitarist-vocalist John Pizzarelli was still in his late teens when composer Richard Rodgers died in December 1979, but the veteran songwriter’s creative prowess was not lost on the budding young interpreter of the Great American Songbook. With a Song in My Heart: John Pizzarelli Sings the Music of Richard Rodgers, the latest chapter in a career that spans more than 25 years, is a tip of the Pizzarelli hat to Rodgers’ musical legacy.

Rodgers was one of the most prolifi c and influential figures in 20th century American music. The composer of nearly a thousand songs and forty Broadway musicals, he is best known for his creative partnerships with lyricists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II.

“With a Song in My Heart” [is] the least oratorical album of Richard Rodgers music ever made. On the record [Pizzarelli] strokes songs like “This Can’t Be Love” and “It’s Easy to Remember” until they purr.
