Bill Charlap Trio • 4th Anniversary Celebration!

“The premiere mainstream piano trio of our day.” – The New Yorker

Bill Charlap leads his long running piano trio in a pair of weekend livestream concerts. Known as a master interpreter of American popular song, Time says, “No matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence.”

Charlap has performed with many leading artists of our time from Phil Woods and Tony Bennett to Gerry Mulligan and Wynton Marsalis and led this trio since 1997. The Guardian explains, “As a unit, this must be one of the best piano trios ever, and certainly as instantly recognisable as any of its great predecessors. Charlap’s touch on the keyboard is light, almost stealthy, even when playing full chords, but always firm, clear and beautifully articulated. With the spirited support of bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington (famously unrelated), the total effect is just perfect.”

“Smoke, late to the live-streaming game, showed that waiting was worth the wait, with its inaugural online concerts. The smallest of the major clubs by capacity, the Upper West Side venue known for its intimacy in person was well recreated online, with the best sound this reviewer has (virtually) heard thus far and no less than six camera angles.” – Andrey Henkin, The New York City Jazz Record
