Bill Charlap
Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola (at Frederick P. Rose Hall), Upper West Side Until Sunday May 31 2015
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. He turns up here for a two-week stand with his trusty rhythm mates, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington.
