Bill Charlap Trio

The piano trio, a time-honored jazz format, remains in great hands with Bill Charlap and a pair of unrelated fellas named Washington -- Peter (bass) and Kenny (drums). Together since 1997, The Bill Charlap Trio has impressed critics and jazz fans alike, and Charlap has also gained a smidgen of pop notoriety. Heck, he accompanied Tony Bennett on “30 Rock.” The studious and swingin’ Charlap has devoted whole albums to revered songwriters -- George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein and Hoagy Carmichael -- and of course he’s the son of “Moose” Charlap, a Broadway composer best known for his work on the score of “Peter Pan.” So you can expect to hear some pages from the Great American Songbook, rendered sublimely.
