Bill Charlap is one of the strongest mainstream jazz pianists on the scene and one of the most gifted interpreters of standards. Stardust is a wonderful album, which began a series of albums that focused on a single composer. Stardust featured the music of Hoagy Carmichael. Features the special lineup of guest stars like Tony Bennett, Shirley Horn & Jim Hall.
There’s a fitting symmetry implicit in Bill Charlap’s latest Blue Note release. It’s a symmetry born from purity of purpose, illuminated on 1 end by the timelessness of Hoagy Carmichael’s Americana, & asserted at the other by the clarity of Charlap’s touch. Charlap negotiates the music of Carmichael as if he’s lived it always – an impressive sleight-of-hand considering the disparate backgrounds from which these jazzmen come: One was inspired by lazy Indiana summers; the other by the fast-break rhythms of New York. What gives the album that extra touch is the special lineup of guest stars like Tony Bennett, Shirley Horn & Jim Hall.
