Stephen Holden on Jessica Molasky and John Pizzarelli

The NYTimes on the fun couple of cabaret/jazz: “I could exhaust my list of superlatives describing how Ms. Molaskey and Mr. Pizzarelli’s musical and comedic repartee sustains an easygoing sophistication that is unmatched in my nightclub experience. They can come up with brilliant moments of musical trompe l’oeil, as in their affectionate re-creation of the sound of Les Paul and Mary Ford in an original song, “Tried Too Hard for Too Long,” or position songs together (Stephen Sondheim’s “Sorry- Grateful” and Paul Simon’s “Hearts and Bones”) to contemplate the stresses of marriage. ”

The piece also contains opinions on a Jason Robert Brown concert at Birdland.
