Bucky Pizzarelli and Ed Laub.
The Bucky Pizzarelli and Ed Laub Duo has been performing for the past 12 years after a lifetime association as teacher/student.

As a duo they perform for audiences all over the US and Canada in clubs, concert halls and jazz festivals.

They combine instrumental and vocal arrangements with an emphasis on the Great American Songbook and well as some of the classic 1930’s guitar duos made popular by Carl Kress/ Dick McDonough, Eddie Lang and George Smith

Their great friendship of over 45 years is evident in their sound and the way they interact together.

Bucky Pizzarelli Born in Paterson, NJ in 1926 Bucky is a world-renowned jazz guitarist. His career spans over 70 years from the Vaughn Monroe Orchestra, to the Johnny Carson Tonight Show. Hundreds of jazz concerts worldwide, including White House performances with Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, and Claude "Fiddler" Williams, with Presidents Reagan and Clinton add to the list.
His numerous worldwide tours also included performances with practically every jazz legend, such as Stephane Grapelli, Slam Stewart, Tal Farlow, Rosemary Clooney, Zoot Sims, Benny Carter, Michael Feinstein and Charlie Byrd, to name a few. He has hundreds of jazz recordings with every major jazz great, including his own solo albums and work with his two sons, John and Martin Pizzarelli. He is on the soundtrack of Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown and appeared on PBS with Les Paul and Tal Farlow, The New Jersey Jazz Guitars [Filmed at Rutgers University].
Last year, Bucky became one of the very first musicians in New Jersey to have two of his guitars, along with a recorded history of his lifetime in music, inducted into the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.
In 2011 Bucky was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame and in 2012 recorded with Paul McCartney on his latest Grammy Winning Album, “Kisses On The Bottom”

Ed Laub Born in Upper Saddle River, NJ in 1952, Ed began playing the guitar at age 11, first with guitarist and banjo player, Bobby Domenic (uncle to jazz legend, Bucky Pizzarelli) and ultimately a few years later in 1969 studying the 7-string guitar with Bucky Pizzarelli. Ed is a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University with a minor degree in music.
