On 2002's STARDUST, his second outing for the venerable Blue Note label, jazz pianist Bill Charlap pays tribute to the music of composer Hoagy Carmichael. While Charlap's lyricism and agility on the keys is certainly the main attraction on this elegant set of standards, the New York City native's well-chosen array of collaborators enhances the entire affair, particularly on the delicate "I Get Along Without You Very Well," with kindred spirit Tony Bennett, and the spare, smoky title track, which features Shirley Horn.
Artist Overview
Jazz pianist Bill Charlap is the son of a vocalist and a Broadway composer, and a champion of traditional musical values. He made a splash in the 1990s, with a back-to-basics style that emphasized melody and tone over harmonic deconstruction. His trio with the unrelated Kenny and Peter Washington took an old-school approach to standards that connected in a big way with both jazz audiences and with the likes of Tony Bennett, who performed with and has publicly praised Charlap. The pianist has also worked with such vets as Benny Carter, Phil Woods, and Clark Terry. Charlap's first album for Blue Note, 2002's STARDUST, turned out to be his breakthrough record, expanding his appeal without diluting his aesthetic.
