• Frank Vignola and Nicki Parrott Salute Les Paul
• Nicki Parrott Trio plays Great American Popular Songs from Gershwin to Bacharach
 
Guitar legends Les Paul and Django Reinhardt (gypsy jazz founder) were dear friends. Frank Vignola and Nicki Parrott, both of whom performed with Les for many years, interweave hilarious, exclusive stories about the two guitar masters into their set of Les Paul and Django hits. In the second set, Australian bassist and vocalist Nicki Parrott performs the best from the Great American Songbook.
 

”How versatile is Frank Vignola? He’s collaborated with Lionel Hampton and Madonna, covers Mozart and McCartney on the same record and is one of Les Paul’s favorite guitarists.”
– Joan Anderman, Boston Globe
 
“[Nicki] has that special gift you cannot buy in a music store.”
- Les Paul
 
“Nicki Parrott could make anyone love jazz.”
- Cabaret Scene
