Rose Theater

Bill Charlap: Broadway to Harlem

Raised by the dynamic combination of his Broadway composer father (Moose Charlap) and a self-described “popular singer with jazz overtones” mother (Sandy Stewart), Bill Charlap’s future in music was inevitable. He began playing piano at the age of three, and this talented architect of the keys is widely recognized for his crisp style, undeniable talent, and supreme virtuosity. For this special evening, Charlap will be joined by his longstanding trio of drummer Kenny Washington and bassist Peter Washington. In addition, special guest vocalists include 2014 GRAMMY® Award nominee Cécile McLorin Salvant and the unparalleled Freddy Cole, whom writer Stanley Crouch refers to as a “swinging, romantic balladeer.” Soulful saxophonist Houston Person (best known for his work with Etta James) and virtuoso clarinetist Ken Peplowski join this ensemble for an unforgettable night of Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, Fats Waller, Eubie Blake, and other icons of American songwriting. Join Charlap on a swinging tour through the heart of New York City via musical theater, jazz, and the blues as we travel from Broadway to Harlem.
