Two Grammy Winners Share The Stage

“[Bridgewater] has a technique and musicality that bests most performers of her generation.” – Guardian

“Charlap is masterful… rollicking stride piano, bebop virtuosity and harmonically opulent modernism.” – New York Times

Effortless. Spontaneous. Inimitable. The convergence of two of jazz’s most legendary forces of nature.
When Grammy-winning singer Dee Dee Bridgewater and Grammy-winning pianist Bill Charlap take the stage, an incomparable experience awaits. With a vast repertoire spanning the greatest periods and genres in music, the duo craft masterful performances of songbook standards.

Drawing on the canons of luminary composers—Ellington, Porter, Sondheim, and others, their virtuosic interpretations traverse the musical spectrum—from intimate ballads to soulful grooves, the duo deliver breathtaking interpretations borne of their musical chemistry for a sublime tour-de-force.
