Father and son duos are relatively rare in jazz but there's no generation gap apparent between Bucky and John Pizzarelli. The two have made a number of strong LPs and CDs together (and individually as well), although it is tough to lavish sufficient praise on this duo-guitar date, played primarily on seven-string electric guitars. Each man adapts equally well, whether in the lead, providing rhythmic support for the other, or matching his partner's lyricism while playing the head of a song
Contrasts (Bucky Pizzarelli & John Pizzarelli album). Contrasts is a jazz album by Bucky Pizzarelli and his son John Pizzarelli, released in 1999.

Three Minute Samba" – 2:38. I Hadn't Anyone Till You/The Very Thought Of You" – 4:30.
John Paul Pizzarelli, Jr. was born on April 6, 1960 in his father's hometown. Most recently John has been found leading a trio including his brother Martin on bass and Ray Kennedy on piano in a modern approximation of Nat Cole's '50s trio. The Pizzarellis continue this tradition with a perfectly charming aplomb and grace that will keep the listener spinning this disc over and over again. Engineered with each Pizzarelli having his own speaker, it is easy to compare the individual styles of the guitarist, though there is really little reason to do so.

This collection combines some nice solo work along with impressive duets from the redoubtable Pizzarellis. The arrangements are comfortable and sound as if they've been worked on for years. More than anything, it feels like what Sunday afternoons must have been at the Pizzarelli house. Both father and son are capable of laying down a solid bass line (7-string guitars don't hurt) while simultaneously playing propulsive rhythm.
