New York Trio – Blues In The Night

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


In the dawn of the 21st century, pianist Bill Charlap took the jazz world by storm with a series of rewarding albums for labels both in the U.S. and abroad. On Blues in the Night, he leads his New York Trio in a recording made for the Japanese label Venus, with veteran bassist Jay Leonhart and fellow young gun Bill Stewart joining him. Right away Charlap signals that he can take an old chestnut into a new direction. … One of the most promising pianists of his generation, this Charlap CD is highly recommended (Ken Dryden/AllMusic).
