I am one of those jazz souls who never misses a Bill Charlap Trio performance in Manhattan - one of the unsung joys of living in the area. There are nine (9) incredible tracks on this CD. However, I would proudly own this release for no other reason than Charlap's offering of "Roundabout" on track two and "Pure Imagination" on track six. Vernon Duke and Ogden Nash wrote "Roundabout" nearly sixty years ago for the Broadway stage. I don't think they could have imagined the magic that the Charlap Trio would bring to the piece, years later - truly my definition of five minutes of heaven on a CD. The song becomes a feather on a breeze. For those looking for piano jazz in its most pure form, you can safely start and finish with this offering from a very young Trio on their way up.Was this review helpful?
