GRAMMY-winning pianist and composer Bill Charlap has established himself among the most respected keyboardists in jazz and leads one of the longest lived and telepathic piano trios working today, featuring bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington. They will be joined by a pair of special guests: vocalist and 2017 NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater, and trumpet icon Nicholas Payton.  

Charlap is known for his work Tony Bennett, Phil Woods, Barbra Streisand, and Gerry Mulligan, and is a consummate soloist and bandleader who has recorded over 30 albums. His 2017 Impulse trio recording Uptown, Downtown won the GRAMMY for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, and his newest Blue Note release, Street of Dreams, was released in 2021.

A restless explorer who has collaborated with master musicians of Mali, interpreted the cabaret of Kurt Weill, and embraced the hard bop of Horace Silver, 2017 NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater is a GRAMMY and Tony-winning music legend who has had a sublime partnership with Charlap, performing in duo during the 2022-23 Season and in concerts around the world.

A founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective, trumpeter, multi-instrumentalist and two-time GRAMMY winner Nicholas Payton has led a remarkable career as a bandleader, composer, collaborator, and writer. He’s recorded and toured with the likes of Elvin Jones, Jimmy Smith, Allen Toussaint, and Joshua Redman, and led 26 albums.
