Bill Charlap and his Trio appear with two superb partners for a charming, close-focus encounter with Strayhorn’s unforgettable songs—and a few scintillating piano solos.  Fearless and inventive, multiple Grammy-Award winner Cécile McLorin Salvant has been called “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade” (New York Times). Trumpeter Jon Faddis “possesses a virtually unparalleled range and full command of his instrument, making the practically impossible seem effortless” (Time Out New York).  It’s a potent artistic partnership, one appropriate to honor what the Library’s jazz curator Larry Appelbaum calls “the creative work of a musical architect of the highest order…one who added greatly to the brilliance and beauty of 20th-century music.”
