BILL CHARLAP & SANDY STEWART
Jazz pianist Bill Charlap comes from a strong musical background. His mother and frequent performing partner Sandy Stewart (http://en.wikipedia.org/
Reviews of Bill Charlap & Sandy Stewart:
+ Stephen Holden in The New York Times: “The singer Sandy Stewart imparts rock-bottom truths in a warm, humming voice that rarely rises above the level of an intimate conversation. The half-smile that flickers on her lips implies a profound wisdom about the things that really matter when you’re a certain age (Ms. Stewart is 75), most of all time and memory. She might be described as a pop-jazz Mona Lisa… While Ms. Stewart’s phrasing with its careful hesitations and emphases on key words maintains a serene facade, Mr. Charlap’s volatile pianism reflects the turmoil below the surface in abrupt changes of rhythm and mood. You might describe his playing as recreating the events that his mother is conjuring.”
