Mary Stallings w/ The Bill Charlap Trio

  • SFJazz Miner Auditorium 201 Franklin Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Tickets ($25-65)

Mary Stallings is joined on night two by one of the premier piano trios on the scene, led by GRAMMY-nominated pianist Bill Charlap, who “approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved” (Time Magazine). Charlap’s latest album is in collaboration with Tony Bennett, performing the music of Jerome Kern.

Soul is a quality that can’t be bought or borrowed, faked or sold, which probably explains why Mary Stallings has emerged once again as one of the most distinctive and compelling jazz singers on the scene.
— Downbeat
When he sits down to play, the result is an embrace, an act of possession. The tune rises, falls, disappears and resurfaces in new forms as Charlap ranges over the keyboard with nimble, crisply swinging lines, subtly layered textures, dense chords and spiky interjections.
