Bill Charlap Trio
May 10, 2014 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM
For more than 15 years, Bill Charlap has been the greatest jazz purveyor of the Great American Songbook—you might even say he owns it. Whereas other jazzmen of his generation play the harmonies and the melody, he plays the song—the whole song—with his innate sense of time, place and melody. With bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (no relation), the trio has secured its place in jazz history with two Grammy nominations. Charlap himself is also the artistic director of New York City's Jazz in July Festival at the 92nd Street Y, and this season curates a three-concert series at NJPAC focusing on the music of Ellington, Gershwin, and Richard Rodgers.
