92Y Podcast: Pianist Bill Charlap, Artistic Director of Jazz in July Summer Festival

Pianist Bill Charlap, Artistic Director of 92nd Street Y's Jazz in July Summer Festival, recently sat down with us for a phone conversation. In the first half of the podcast above, Bill tackles the first week of Jazz in July, followed by a discussion of the second week. He spoke about his vision for the festival, the significance of New York Jazz, the role Vince Guaraldi (composer of the Charlie Brown songs) played in quietly introducing America to his own music without notice, why this series is unique in the season and more. At one point, Charlap declared the acoustics at our concert hall as the best of any he has played.

The music you hear during brief moments in the podcast is from Bill's album, Stardust. Yesterday, we gave a few copies of that album away, but you can still win your free copy by visiting our Facebook page and leaving a comment on our wall. We've got one more CD to give!
