Featuring the trio in peak performance, a 5-star Downbeat review hails this performance as, “A master class in class.” Lyricists Alan & Marilyn Bergman said, “Bill Charlap’s playing is unique, warm and intelligent. He not only plays the melody – he also plays the lyric. And, for lyric writers, that’s as good as it gets.”
