Bill Evans ( August 16th 1929 - September 15th 1980)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bill could make cool smoulder – what is there left to say about him? His music speaks for him. He did more with less – his brilliance was always deep and un-superficial, and you already had to be turned a little inward in order to ‘get’ him.  He had incredible style – careful, thoughtful , refined, measured and spell-binding are the words that come to mind when I think of Bill. He could handle anything from a Pavane of Fauré to the serial tonality of a  Schoenberg scale.

 

 

If any further proof of Bill’s brilliance is needed here it is.
I don’t know anyone else who could have coaxed this much melodic coherence out of potential atonality.
