    I have one of his albums on vinyl. I'll have to dig it out for a listen.

    R.I.P. :(

    Another sad passing.
    I listened to him in the '80s when I was building a 7 string and liked his playing better than Van Eps'.
    RIP

    I’m very sad to hear this.
    I saw him play with Stephane Grapelli in the early 1990s at the Paramount Theater here.
    He was the perfect foil.
    RIP, and thanks for your service, and the brilliant music.

    When I was in college studying jazz, the guitar students had to listen to Barney Kessel, Joe Pass and Bucky Pizzarelli. As a bass major, I listened to them too because they always had the best bass players.

    Great player to say the least. There's a wonderful video of Bucky, Frank Vignola and his sidekick Vinny plus Tommy Emmanuel. I drag that out now and then.

    RIP Bucky

    In the 80's I saw him playing, a week night, in an old hotel in NJ.
    When we checked in I saw there was going to be music in the lounge. I asked who was playing; and was floored when the manager said Bucky Pizzarelli.
    Told my wife that I was going down to the lounge as soon as the kids were tucked in.

    He was definitely one of the greats of that generation of players!

    Just an icon, that so many people looked to when developing their skills and etc.

    Now, he's gone someplace wonderful where folks can still do shows and touch their audience. Rest well, John Sr.

    I worked at a (now defunct) mom & pop music store in Nashville about 20 years ago. We had a regular customer who was a phenomenal jazz/swing guitarist. Turns out he had been a student of Bucky’s for a long time.

    Wow, that's too bad. He had a long run I guess. I've been amazed at how many times I hear a jazzy song on the radio that I really like the guitar work on and sure enough...I discover it's Bucky!
