It was an honor to be invited to contribute a story for The Jazz Education Network, a wonderful organization dedicated to building the jazz arts community by advancing education, promoting performances and developing audiences.
As one of L.A.’s most sought-after studio musicians, guitarist Tom Rizzo has recorded and performed with Brian Wilson, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole and many others. Rizzo leads his own jazz trio and has recorded two critically acclaimed albums for Origin Records featuring impressive sidemen, including Peter Erskine and Bob Sheppard. A prolific composer, Rizzo has written music for hundreds of television episodes, including “In Living Color” and “The Wayans Brothers.”
I still continue as a professional musician and jazz guitar player in Los Angeles. I look forward to helping this niche of fellow colleagues and professionals, many of whom I've known for over 25 years, and feel privileged to have gained their trust to help them manage their financial future.
