Café Carlyle is pleased to welcome back guitarist John Pizzarelli, who just performed a sold- out, critically lauded show with wife Jessica Molaskey which TIME placed on their list of 2014’s Ten Best Plays & Musicals. He will premiere Strictly Bossa Nova II, a new concert of bossa nova music featuring the Brazilian singer-songwriter and pianist Daniel Jobim, grandson of the seminal Antonio Carlos Jobim, April 21-May 2, 2015. Of their previous engagement, Will Friedwald of the Wall Street Journal said, “Mr. Pizzarelli and his rhythm section... renew our faith in the Jobim classics as well as the idea of sambaing up the likes of George Gershwin and Cole Porter.”

Performances will take place Tuesday - Friday at 8:45pm; and Saturdays at 8:45pm and 10:45pm. Reservations made by phone at 212.744.1600 are $100 ($150 for premium seating, $55 for bar seating) Tuesday – Thursday & the Saturday late show; and $110 ($160 for premium seating, $65 for bar seating) on Friday and Saturday. Reservations made online at ticketweb.com are $110 ($165 for premium seating) Tuesday – Thursday & the Saturday late show; and $120 ($175 for premium seating) on Friday and Saturday.

The evening will feature the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, as well as bossa nova renditions of classic Great American Songbook selections. In addition to playing guitar, Pizzarelli will sing alongside Jobim, joined by an ensemble of musicians including Martin Pizzarelli on bass, Duduka DaFonseca on drums and Helio Alves on piano.
