Kenny Washington, drums

For twenty years, Bill Charlap’s name has been synonymous with the Great American Songbook—you might even say he owns it. Whereas other jazzmen of his generation play the harmonies and the tune, this mainstream master plays the song—the whole song—with his innate sense of time, place, and melody.
