O’s Notes: Pizzarelli has fun strumming his guitar while Ray Kennedy tickles the ivories and Martin Pizzarelli walks his bass. But John explodes when it’s his turn to solo on “Just You, Just Me”, scatting to match the melody and showing his ability to burn. He’s also crooning as the lead vocalist on 36 tunes – two hours plus of live action at Birdland, This is a top notch performance with a wealth of music at varied tempos and moods.
