A rare solo recital with one of the worlds premier jazz pianists. Two time Grammy nominee Bill Charlap has performed with many leading artists of our times, from Phil Woods and Tony Bennett to Gerry Mulligan and Wynton Marsalis.
TIME magazine wrote, Bill Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved, no matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence.
Known for his interpretations of American popular songs, Charlap has recorded albums featuring the music of Hoagy Carmichael, Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin. In 1997, he formed the Bill Charlap Trio with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (no relation), now recognized as one of the leading groups in jazz.
