Bill Charlap with Kenny and Peter Washington @ Keystone Korner

Keystone Korner Baltimore

Keystone Korner is open again for indoor performances with limited socially distanced seating and dining. Up to 3 folks can join me to see Bill Charlap with Kenny and Peter Washington. "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. The tune rises, falls, disappears, and resurfaces in new forms as Charlap ranges over the keyboard with nimble, crisply swinging lines, subtly layered textures, dense chords, and spiky interjections.” TIME Magazine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyaNeR6h5ow One of the world’s premier jazz pianists, Bill Charlap has performed and recorded with modern masters ranging from Phil Woods and Wynton Marsalis, to Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand. Since 1997, he has led the GRAMMY® Award-nominated Bill Charlap Trio with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, now recognized as a leading group in jazz. The performance is scheduled for 730pm. I will arrive by 630p and grab a table for dining.
