Written in the Stars  
  Bill Charlap Trio
  Blue Note Records 7243 5 27291 28   [69:49]

Here is a collection of cherished standards, played with suave sophistication by a polished jazz trio. Ensemble is near-perfection - the whole is easy and relaxed and as comfortable as a well-worn old glove. Polished, imaginative and refined and just the job for late night relaxation. Need I say more. One gripe though the instruments might have been balanced better with drums set back a shade in some numbers to give some well-needed perspective The list of numbers is given below.

Cole Porter: In the Still of the Night; Where Have You Been (all these years)?
Johnny Mercer - Dream
Harold Arlen/Ira Gershwin - The Man Who Got Away
Irving Berlin - Blue Skies
Richard Rogers/Lorenz Hart - Where or When
Frank Loesser - On a Slow Boat to China
Harold Arlen/Johnny Mercer - One for My Baby
Moose Charlap/Eddie Lawrence - I'll Never Go There Anymore
George and Ira Gershwin - Lorelei
Harold Arlen/Leo Robin - It Was Written in the Stars
