Jazz Room Series<br>Bill Charlap / Jon Faddis Duo


Grammy-winning pianist Bill Charlap’s five years as William Paterson’s jazz studies director have shown that he is an equal inspiration as a teacher and as a pianist.  He is a veteran of long memberships in groups led by legendary saxophonists Phil Woods and Gerry Mulligan, and his trio of over twenty years is one of the leading jazz groups of jazz.  His duo partner Jon Faddis is an equally major jazz figure, on the New York and national scene first as a studio musician, then as the lead trumpet with the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra, as leader of the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra, the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, and since the 1970s as a major solo artist mentored by and often associated with the iconic Dizzy Gillespie.

Admission: General Public $15 • WP faculty, staff, alumni, and senior citizens $12 • Non-William Paterson students $8

Each Jazz Room concert is preceded by a “Sittin’ In” meet-the-artist session one hour prior to performance. Free to all ticket holders. Audience members have a chance to meet and interact with that day’s artist in a question-answer format.
