Bill Charlap Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by Jim Santella


Recorded in September 2003, this program includes several standards, giving a sense of familiarity to its essence. Pianist Bill Charlap enjoys a mellow groove. He squeezes the melody out of the piano as if it were coming from a rose petal. Nothing stands in his way as he sends each lyrical theme on its way. With ...

Bill Charlap Trio: Live at the Village Vanguard

Read "Live at the Village Vanguard" reviewed by J Hunter


Bill Charlap is a tremendous player in concert. He leans into a solo like a sailor tacking into the wind during a Pacific gale; his hands can disappear into a blur, and they can touch the keys with a delicacy usually reserved for surgeons and safecrackers. Regardless of approach, the results are usually breathtaking, making Charlap's ...

Bill Charlap Trio: Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein

Read "Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein" reviewed by Joshua Weiner


The son of a Broadway composer, Bill Charlap seems to have the standard jazz repertoire in his blood. His is a resolutely mainstream approach, in the vein if not always the style of Oscar Peterson, and he sounds completely at home with the music on his latest album, Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein.

Bill Charlap Trio: Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein

Read "Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein" reviewed by Jim Santella


Capturing the wide range of expression that Leonard Bernstein put into this music, pianist Bill Charlap leads a stellar trio through various forms of emotion on Somewhere. From the album’s opening “Cool,” with its built-in, street-smart intensity, to the haphazard “Big Stuff” at a loping tempo with laid-back demeanor, the trio interprets the composer admirably.

Bill Charlap Trio: Written In The Stars

Read "Written In The Stars" reviewed by AAJ Staff


After a decade of accompanying some of the world's best-known jazz vocalists and instrumentalists, pianist Bill Charlap is stepping forth, front and center, to claim his well-deserved recognition as a pianist with melodic expressiveness and straightforward appeal. While Charlap performed in Gerry Mulligan's, Phil Woods' and Clark Terry's groups, it's easier to imagine him accompanying singers ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
