    Thankfully, this collaboration between legitimate jazz string players and legendary veteran guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli does not suffer from sugary saturation, as these sessions were conceived and played with large amounts of taste, class, and substance. Cellist Jesse Levy, violist Valerie Levy, and violinists Aaron Weinstein and Sara Caswell are all capable of swinging this program of standards on their own, while Pizzarelli's seven-string amplified or acoustic guitar has more than enough fuel to keep the tunes moving along briskly. This is Pizzarelli's seventh recording for the Arbors label as a leader, and his 30th project for them overall, proof of his endurance and continuing interest in making good music consistently through the decades of his golden years.

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (p.74) - "SO HARD TO FORGET is very much a sentimental journey for Pizzarelli, and the lineup here, which includes violinists Sara Caswell and Aaron Weinstein, cellist Jesse Levy and violist Valerie Levy, are adept at sustaining the romantic mood and offering some soulful or swinging counterpoint."
