This was a thoroughly enjoyable but also deeply educational jazz performance. Pianists Charlap and Rosenthal opened with a duet, and were joined by their bassist and drummer. Every player is a star; Charlap, of course, is in a league of his own. Then, they work with two talented young students, each of whom plays an American Songbook tune solo, and a jazz standard with the trio. There is much critiquing, especially by Charlap, who shows off his knowledge and incredible listening capacities as well as jazz technique and approach. And no matter where one sits in the audience, players' work on the keys is visible through perfectly projected keyboard views above each. This is for any serious lover of music or jazz but not for ears seeking only pop-satsifaction and not gorgeous solo and trio work.
