Bill Charlap
The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley presents jazz pianist Bill Charlap in a trio format. Band members include Sean Smith (bass) and Kenny Washington (drums). Set times Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm on Tuesday and 5:30pm Wednesday.

“Charlap's melodic charm, insouciant swing and harmonic élan unfold with a deceptive ease... Also significant is Charlap's economy of means. Regardless of tempo, his music breathes. Indeed, if Stan Getz had played piano, he just might have sounded like Bill Charlap," —Chuck Berg JazzTimes

One of the world's premier jazz pianists, Bill Charlap has performed and recorded with many leading artists of our time, ranging from jazz masters Phil Woods and Wynton Marsalis to singers Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand. Since 1997, he has led the Bill Charlap Trio with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, now recognized as one of the leading groups in jazz. Charlap is the artistic director of New York City's Jazz in July Festival, and he has produced concerts for Jazz at Lincoln Center, the JVC Jazz Festival and the Hollywood Bowl.
