On 2002's STARDUST, his second outing for the venerable Blue Note label, jazz pianist Bill Charlap pays tribute to the music of composer Hoagy Carmichael. While Charlap's lyricism and agility on the keys is certainly the main attraction on this elegant set of standards, the New York City native's well-chosen array of collaborators enhances the entire affair, particularly on the delicate "I Get Along Without You Very Well," with kindred spirit Tony Bennett, and the spare, smoky title track, which features Shirley Horn.
