Grammy Awards 2016
Bill Charlap with Tony Bennett
Bill Charlap, the jazz pianist who captivated the audience at his concert on October 19, 2014 at the Madison Congregational Church, sponsored by the Madison Winter Club, has won a Grammy with Tony Bennett for best traditional pop album, “The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern.”
Charlap, in accepting the award, was quick to say that he didn’t do it on his own. “I want to thank God, I want to thank my beautiful wife Renee Rosnes,” Charlap said; Rosnes, a pianist, also appears on the album. More thanks went to, among others, his musical colleagues bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington; . . . . . . .
