John Pizzarelli, the world-renowned jazz guitarist and singer, was called “hip with a wink” by Town & Country, “madly creative” by the Los Angeles Times and “the genial genius of the guitar” by the Toronto Star. Performing with his wife, singer/actress Jessica Molaskey, and his father, guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli, they’ve been labeled “the First Family of Cool” by the San Francisco Chronicle and “the von Trapps on martinis” by The New Yorker. According to The New York Times, “the Pizzarelli-Molaskey duo are as good as it gets in any entertainment medium.”
Jessica Molaskey is a veteran of a dozen Broadway shows: A Man of No Importance at Lincoln Center written by Terrance McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty; Parade, directed by Hal Prince; Dream; Tommy; Crazy for You, Les Misérables; City of Angels; Chess; Cats and Oklahoma! She has also performed off Broadway and regionally in dozens of productions.
Jessica has premiered music written by Ricky Ian Gordon, Adam Guettel, Jason Robert Brown, Michael John LaChiusa and Stephen Sondheim and John Bucchino. She has written songs for almost a dozen recordings, including Greed, part of a commission for Audra McDonald’s The Seven Deadly Sins and Cradle and All.
