Bookmark and Share

The Bill Charlap Trio, a fixture of the New York jazz firmament, began making music together 20 years ago. To celebrate milestone, the group - with Charlap on piano, Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums - has announced a new studio album. Impulse!/Verve will release the album, Uptown, Downtown, on Sept. 8, during the trio's next two-week residency at the Village Vanguard. Here is the title track, a cool blue saunter in a minor key, which makes its debut at WBGO.
