Dizzy's Club

Monday Nights with WBGO: Ashley Pezzotti Quintet

With vocalist Ashley Pezzotti, tenor saxophonist Alex Weitz, pianist Emmet Cohen, bassist Russell Hall, and drummer Bryan Carter.

“The narrative of life, love and promise conjure the sensibilities of a bygone era, something particularly impressive for a 23-year-old vocalist... A sound band, promising voice, excellent song selection and writing mark Pezzotti as a performer to watch.” — DownBeat

“Pezzotti may be young, but she sings like an old soul, a musical melding of Ella Fitzgerald and Anita O’Day, with a little Claudia Acuña thrown in.” - Tuscon Lifestyle

Ashley Pezzotti is a young jazz vocalist rapidly making a name for herself, and 2019 was quite a year for Pezzotti, with highlights including the release of her critically acclaimed and encouragingly titled debut album We’ve Only Just Begun; a live performance of Wynton Marsalis’ The Ever Fonky Lowdown with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis; and participation in the prestigious Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program, in which she was mentored by Dee Dee Bridgewater, Jason Moran, Casey Benjamin, Marcus Printup, and Peter Martin. Lovers of the Great American Songbook—and tunes inspired by it—should make sure to see Pezzotti perform live, especially when her quintet is practically a next-generation all-star band, comprising multiple regular Jazz at Lincoln Center headliners.
