(2005 Grammy Nominee for Best Jazz Instrumental Album) Considering that Leonard Bernstein embodied all that is exciting in jazz, classical, and popular song, Bill Charlap is the ideal performer to re-create his music for piano trio. A 2016 Grammy winner with Tony Bennett for The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern, Charlap earned his first Grammy nomination for this 2004 disc, presented here as a Daedalus exclusive. From West Side Story comes "Cool," "Jump," a percussive "America" and the dreamy "Somewhere," while the Tony Award–winning Wonderful Town is represented by "A Quiet Girl" and a joyful "Ohio" Other highlights include On the Town's "Lucky to Be Me" and Candide's "Glitter and Be Gay." C.harlap's sensitive piano playing stands in beautifully for vocals throughout, backed by Peter Washington and Kenny Washington, one of the most intuitive rhythm sections in jazz.
