"Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved...when he sits down to play, the result is an embrace, an act of possession. The tune rises, falls, disappears and resurfaces in new forms as Charlap ranges over the keyboard with nimble, crisply swinging lines, subtly layered textures, dense chords and spiky interjections.” TIME Magazine
One of the world’s premier jazz pianists, Bill Charlap has performed and recorded with modern masters ranging from Phil Woods and Wynton Marsalis to Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand. Since 1997, he has led the Grammy®-nominated Bill Charlap Trio with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, now recognized as one of the leading groups in jazz.
Tonight, bassist Ron Carter—an NEA Jazz Master featured on over 2,500 records, including collaborations with literally hundreds of the most important jazz artists in history (Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Lou Donaldson, Coleman Hawkins, Herbie Hancock, and Milt Jackson, to name a few )—sits in as a member of the trio.
