In celebration of legendary composer Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday, jazz pianist Bill Charlap and his trio perform songs from Charlap’s tribute, Somewhere: The Songs of Leonard Bernstein. Charlap is an acclaimed master of the Great American Songbook, whose inspired reading of Bernstein includes songs from West Side Story, On The Town, Fancy Free and Wonderful Town. Charlap has performed with Wynton Marsalis and Barbra Streisand and had a longstanding residency at the legendary Village Vanguard. In 2016, Charlap's collaboration with Tony Bennett led to a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Album.
“Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved…when he sits down to play, the result is an embrace, an act of possession.”
"Bill Charlap is one of the greatest musicians and greatest artists I've ever met."
