Bill Charlap: The Cool School
January 18-19, 2013, 7:30pm & 9:30pm, The Allen Room

This program features Frank Wess, Mary Stallings, and Bucky Pizzarelli. The full band consists of Charlap (piano), Kenny Washington (drums), Peter Washington (bass), Frank Wess (saxophone, flute), Mary Stallings (vocals), Bucky Pizzarelli (guitar), Steve Wilson (multi-instrumentalist), Steve Nelson (vibes), Jeremy Pelt (trumpet), Gary Smulyan (baritone saxophone), John Allred (trombone), Bob Stewart (tuba), and Jeff Scott (French horn).
