WBGO to Broadcast Charlap Performance

Pianist Bill Charlap (pictured) has a new album in stores this week, the standards-heavy Somewhere: The Songs Of Leonard Bernstein. We reported that news last month and told you that it’s an album of classic Bernstein tunes, natch, with Charlap’s longstanding, non-related trio-mates, Peter Washington (bass) and Kenny Washington (drums), providing support. None of that has changed, we’re just here today to tell you about Charlap’s upcoming live radio broadcast on WBGO-FM.

The pianist and his band mates will play live at J&R Music World in lower Manhattan this Saturday, March 27, from 4 to 5 p.m. and Newark, N.J.-based WBGO will send the music out over the air, no doubt with an indecency-deleting, seven-second delay in effect. Not that Charlap needs one. To listen, tune in at 88.3 on your FM dial.
