About Bill Charlap

One of the world’s premier jazz pianists, Grammy award winner Bill Charlap has performed and recorded with many leading artists of our time, ranging from jazz masters Phil Woods and Wynton Marsalis to singers Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand. Since 1997, he has led the Bill Charlap Trio with bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, now recognized as one of the leading groups in jazz. Charlap is the artistic director of 92Y's Jazz in July Festival in NYC, and in 2017 will celebrate his 13th Anniversary as director. He has also produced concerts for Jazz at the Lincoln Center, the JVC Jazz Festival and the Hollywood Bowl. Tony Bennett and Bill Charlap are the recipients of a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop album, for their 2015 release – The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern

Featuring the trio in peak performance, a 5-star Downbeat review hails this performance as, "A master class in class." Lyricists Alan & Marilyn Bergman said, "Bill Charlap's playing is unique, warm and intelligent. He not only plays the melody – he also plays the lyric. And, for lyric writers, that's as good as it gets.”

About Eldar Djangirov

When Eldar Djangirov (pronounced john-’gear-ov) was signed to Sony Masterworks at the age of seventeen, the young pianist from Kansas City was already well known for his prodigious pyrotechnics and precocious knowledge of the bebop tradition. Along the way, he has had the good fortune to work with jazz masters Dr. Billy Taylor, Michael Brecker, Marian McPartland, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Roy Hargrove, and many others. Through these and other wonderful musical experiences, Eldar continues to explore new frontiers through composing and performing, enabling him ultimately to realize his own musical vision.

Eldar has appeared at the Tokyo, Lionel Hampton, Vienna, and Monterey Jazz Festivals to name a few, and has toured extensively worldwide. High profile performances include the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall. Eldar has been seen on national TV including the 2000 and 2008 Grammy Awards, Late Night with Conan O’BrienCBS Saturday Early Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has also played with the world renowned NHK Symphony Orchestra, the Russian National Orchestra, and the San Diego Symphony Orchestra.


Eldar’s fifth recording, entitled Three Stories, is his first solo piano album and has garnered rave reviews:

  • “This is certainly jazz piano, but it’s the kind that belongs in a recital hall. Djangirov gets to the heart of every song” Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
  • “Something special goes on her In Djangirov’s hands, the piano is a dramatic personage” Karl Stark, Philadelphia Inquirer
  • “Djangirov’s playing is simply flawless.” Jeff Tamarkin, All Music Guide

Jazz at the Maverick

Saturday, September 2, 2017   8 pm

Karl Berger and the Creative Music Studio – IN THE SPIRIT OF DON CHERRY


General Admission $25                   Reserved Seating $45             Students $5


Jazz at the Maverick presents the CMS Improvisers Octet, exploring themes from some of Don Cherry’s visionary recordings as well as pieces by other composers that follow his lead into “world fusion.” The ensemble’s “In the Spirit of Don Cherry” performance will use pieces from these materials as launching pads for improvised interpretations that weave together jazz, world music and contemporary music.


The ensemble features musicians who played with Cherry including Karl Berger (piano, vibes, leader), Bob Stewart (tuba), Steven Bernstein (trumpet), Peter Apfelbaum (reeds, percussion), Graham Haynes (cornet), Ingrid Sertso (vocals); along with Adam Lane (bass) and Tani Tabbal (drums).    


About Don Cherry

Noted for his long association with saxophonist Ornette Coleman, which began in the late 1950s, Don Cherry became a pioneer of world-fusion music in the 1960s. During this period, he incorporated various ethnic styles into his playing and composing. Cherry, who died in 1995, was essential to the creation and development of the Creative Music Studio™.  He inspired many of its methodologies, taught many CMS workshops and founded his legendary group, Codona, at CMS. A suite of his is included in CMS Archive Project Selections Vol. 2, released last year.



About The Creative Music Studio and Karl Berger

CMS engages musicians and listeners from all backgrounds and traditions, deepening and transforming their personal experience, understanding, and expression of music as a universal language. Over its 45 year history, hundreds of artists from all over the world representing nearly every style or genre of music have taught and performed at CMS. CMS was founded in 1973 by artistic director Karl Berger, composer, arranger, conductor, pianist, and vibraphonist, along with Ornette Coleman and Ingrid Sertso. The six-time winner of the Downbeat Critics Poll and recipient of numerous other awards in the US and Europe, Karl holds a PhD in music esthetics and has been a professor of composition and an artist-in-residence at universities, schools, and festivals worldwide. He has recorded and performed with Don Cherry, Lee Konitz, John McLaughlin, Gunther Schuller, Dave Brubeck, Dave Holland, Ed Blackwell, Pharoah Sanders, and many others.
