Bill Charlap Biography by David R. Adler

Bill Charlap is one of the strongest mainstream jazz pianists on the scene and one of the most gifted interpreters of standards. He grew up in a musical household, as the son of Broadway songwriter Moose Charlap and singer Sandy Stewart. Taking to the piano at a young age, he went on to study at New York's High School of Performing Arts. He then entered college, but rather than finishing, he opted to practice and play on his own. Pianist Bill Mays soon took up Charlap's cause, recommending the young man as his replacement in the Gerry Mulligan Quartet. During this time, Charlap also worked with Benny CarterClark Terry, and Frank Wess, and was sought after as an accompanist for singers such as Tony BennettCarol Sloane, and Sheila Jordan. In 1995, he secured one of the most coveted piano chairs in jazz with the Phil Woods Quintet.

Along With MeAll the while, Charlap showed steady development as a leader. His debut came in 1994 with Along with Me, followed by Souvenir in 1995 and Distant Star in 1996. His 1997 release, All Through the Night, was the first to feature his trio with the redoubtable (and unrelated) Washingtons, Peter and Kenny, on bass and drums respectively. In 2000, this lineup had its major-label breakthrough with the highly acclaimed Blue Note disc Written in the Stars. Two albums appeared in 2001: 2Gether with Warren Vach√© and Contrasts with Jon Gordon'S Wonderful hit the shelves in 2002, as did Stardust, which began a series of albums that focused on a single composer. Stardust featured the music of Hoagy Carmichael, 2004's Somewhere was an all-Leonard Bernstein affair, and 2005's Plays George Gershwin featured ten songs by the man Charlap considers "the American soul." Also in 2005, he released an album with vocalist Sandy StewartLove Is Here to Stay. The concert album Live at the Village Vanguard appeared in 2007.

Double PortraitIn 2010, Charlap joined pianist Renee Rosnes for the duo effort Double Portrait. Two years later, he reunited with Stewart for Something to Remember. In 2015, he collaborated with legendary vocalist Tony Bennett for Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern, and in 2017 he released Uptown, Downtown with his trio.
