Although pianist Bill Charlap didn't write many of the songs in his trio's repertoire, it's not inappropriate to call him a songsmith; he reshapes the Great American Songbook until it becomes something new, if not altogether different. Here, he turns up at Smoke with his trusty rhythm mates, bassist Peter Washingon and drummer Kenny Washington.
