    William John Bill Evans (August 16, 1929 – September 15, 1980) was an American jazz pianist and composer who mostly worked in a trio setting. Evans' use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically independent, singing melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today.
    Born in Plainfield, New Jersey, he was classically trained, and studied at Southeastern Louisiana University. In 1955, he moved to New York, where he worked with bandleader and theorist George Russell. In 1958, Evans joined Miles Davis's sextet, where he was to have a profound influence. In 1959, the band, then immersed in modal jazz, recorded Kind of Blue, the best-selling jazz album of all time.
    In late 1959, Evans left the Miles Davis band and began his career as a leader with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian, a group now regarded as a seminal modern jazz trio. In 1961, ten days after recording the highly acclaimed Sunday at the Village Vanguard and Waltz for Debby, LaFaro died in a car accident. After months of seclusion, Evans re-emerged with a new trio, featuring bassist Chuck Israels.
    In 1963, Evans recorded Conversations with Myself, an innovative solo album using the unconventional (in jazz solo recordings) technique of overdubbing over himself. In 1966, he met bassist Eddie Gómez, with whom he would work for eleven years. Several successful albums followed, such as Bill Evans at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Alone and The Bill Evans Album, among others.
    Many of his compositions, such as Waltz for Debby, have become standards and have been played and recorded by many artists. Evans was honored with 31 Grammy nominations and seven awards, and was inducted in the Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame.

    1:12:33 Ornithology (Harris, Parker)
    1:18:08 Medley: Autumn in New York/How About You? (Duke, Freed, Lane)

    Vol I:
    In need of money and wanting to quickly fulfill his contractual obligations to Riverside, Bill Evans recorded two albums worth of solos in one day. The emotional and rather stark music was not initially released until the late '80s although it is now available on a pair of CDs. Due to the lack of much mood or tempo variation, this particular set is recommended mostly for Evans completists and longtime fans. There are two medleys (the pianist was playing one tune after another and a few songs overlapped) and every number would be recorded by Evans (generally in trio formats) at other times. Interesting but not essential music.
    AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

    Vol II:
    This CD's booklet liner notes written by Gene Lees tell as much -- if not more -- of the story about the circumstances surrounding this session as the music itself. Though in retrospect Lees hears added value in these solo piano works from Bill Evans, there is a palpable and recognizable deterioration in the great pianist's ability to perform at his optimal genius level. In trouble with heroin addiction during 1963 when these tracks were documented, Evans both struggles and prevails through his drug-induced haze to produce an effort that is at many times expectedly brilliant -- the prerequisite and operative word being effort. Where Evans was normally fluid and cool to the point of nonchalance, here he is as much poignant and inventive as he is distracted and removed at times from the melodies. Since this endeavor is his first as a solo pianist, and the second issued volume of these sessions minus outtakes, perhaps Evans was more uncomfortable without rhythm mates and not as confident. The story told by Lees, with his undeniable support for Evans and frank honestly about his plight, needs to be read and understood. It is Evans as an incredible player -- albeit diminished on any minimal or distinguishable level -- that deserves close attention to appreciate both his beauty and pain. During Love Is Here to Stay, Evans is clearly having difficulty, yet he rallies out of an unsure thought to carry this theme onward. On What Kind of Fool Am I? (misidentified by Lees in the liner notes as Who Can I Turn To?), the pianist recalls a pensive and introspective, almost gut-wrenching mood, perhaps a self-examination of his condition. The better reinterpretations include a wonderfully spacious version of All the Things You Are, a playful medley of Autumn in New York and How About You?, and the lively jazzed-up Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. The tricky Charlie Parker bop anthem Ornithology has the pianist rambling off the beaten path in a carefree but a rough dissertation. Apparently Evans did not care for these recordings, but listeners have two CD editions to enjoy, and despite his lessened capacity, they are still enjoyable in their flawed but brilliant way. After all, this is the great Bill Evans, and he remains so for all time.

    Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz - When I Fall In Love

  • Bill Evans - Eloquence

    40:53

    Eloquence is an album composed of songs played by jazz musicians Bill Evans and Eddie Gomez between the years of 1973 and 1975. It was released posthumously in 1982 on Fantasy Records

    Personel: Bill Evans (p) Eddie Gómez (bs)
    Released: 1982
    Recorded: November 19, 1973 Fantasy Studios, Berkeley
    Label: Fantasy F-9618
    Producer: Helen Keane, Orrin Keepnews

    0:00 Gone With the Wind (Herbert Magidson, Allie Wrubel)
    5:36 Saudade Do Brasil (Antônio Carlos Jobim)
    11:19 In a Sentimental Mood (Duke Ellington, Manny Kurtz, Irving Mills)
    17:29 But Beautiful (Johnny Burke, Jimmy Van Heusen)
    21:11 All of You (Cole Porter)
    26:10 Since We Met (Bill Evans)
    29:52 Medley: But Not for Me (George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin) / Isn't It Romantic? (Richard Rodgers), Lorenz Hart / The Opener (Bill Evans)
    34:59 Medley: When in Rome / It Amazes Me (Cy Coleman)

    This interesting album was originally released posthumously in 1982. Pianist Bill Evans is featured on four duets with his longtime bassist Eddie Gomez in 1974-75, exploring a quartet of superior standards. The second half of the program (which dates from 1973 and 1975) is not on the same level. Evans is heard playing two songs he was not all that familiar with late at night at a club, and he performs two other songs and a wandering medley while rehearsing in a recording studio. Being a musical perfectionist, it is a bit doubtful if he would have wanted this music to be released although longtime Bill Evans collectors will find the explorations to be intriguing.

    The recordings on this CD precede the same trio's live performance at the Village Vanguard in 1961 by more than a year. Incomplete versions of these tracks have been previousely issued on LP but appear on CD in their entirety. We are proud to present the complete Birdland sessions of the most legendary of all Bill Evans trios.

    Personnel: Bill Evans (p) Scott LaFaro (b) Paul Motian (dr)
    Released: End of March 1992
    Recorded: February 2, 1960 Birdland Club NYC
    Label: Cool & Blue Records ‎– C&B-CD106



    The legendary edition of the Bill Evans Trio featured impeccable drummer Paul Motian and ill-starred bassist Scott LaFaro; they made a handful of recordings for Riverside, but their only released live sessions came from their final engagement at the Village Vanguard in June, 1961. The release of these airchecks from four separate broadcasts is a welcome addition to their discography. There are three excellent takes of Autumn Leaves, with the first kicked off by a long Scott LaFaro solo. Evans offers a stunning seven-minute Nardis, which is possibly his earliest live recording of the piece that he would perform and record many more times. LaFaro delivers a compelling solo that only hints at the potential that was extinguished with his death in an auto crash following the famous 1961 Village Vanguard sessions. Even with the noise typically found in releases made from vintage radio broadcasts, this is a historic session worth the extra effort to locate.

    Wkipedia:
    Suicide Is Painless is a song written by Johnny Mandel (music) and Mike Altman (lyrics), which was the theme song for both the movie and TV series M*A*S*H. Mike Altman is the son of the original film’s director, Robert Altman, and was 14 years old when he wrote the song’s lyrics. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in the 1980s, Robert Altman said that while he only made $70,000 for having directed the movie, his son had earned more than $1 million for having co-written the song.

  • Bill Evans Trio on Jazz 625

    1:10:43

    On March 19, 1965, the Bill Evans Trio stopped by the BBC studios in London to play a pair of sets on Jazz 625, the now-legendary program hosted by the British trumpeter Humphrey Lyttelton. The combo–which featured Evans on piano, Chuck Israels on bass and Larry Bunker on drums–played two sets, including most of the songs from their just-completed album, Trio ’65. The two 35-minute programs (shown consecutively in the video above) take us back in time to see and hear one of the most brilliant and influential jazz pianists of all time, at work in a tightly integrated trio.

    This compilation collects the complete February 6, 1972 concert by the Bill Evans Trio that was first aired by A la Masion de la Radio in Paris and subsequently issued on two individual CDs by France's Concert. The pianist, joined by bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell, is in top form throughout the performance, even if the first half of the concert is a bit laid-back for Evans. But drawing from a walk of material, including numerous originals, there's also the haunting Turn Out the Stars and the bittersweet The Two Lonely People, on which the trio gathers steam in the second half, with a wild romp through Evans' demanding Twelve Tone Tune and a delightfully breezy treatment of Very Early (showcasing Gomez), along with a moving rendition of Denny Zeitlin's gorgeous requiem Quiet Now among the highlights. The final track is from a Yugoslavian jazz festival recorded a few months later and previously issued on the Enja compilation Live at the Festival with British drummer Tony Oxley in Morell's place. Evidently due to lack of rehearsal and familiarity working with Evans, Oxley never really blends in very well with the pianist and Gomez in the extended workout of Nardis. But due to the excellent performances by Evans and Gomez, this is a rewarding disc that returns once rare music to print.

    Quiet Now is an album by jazz pianist Bill Evans, released in 1969.

    Personnel: Bill Evans (p) Eddie Gómez (bs) Marty Morrell (dr)
    Released: 1970
    Recorded: November 28, 1969 Amsterdam, Netherlands
    Label: Charly
    Producer: -

    15:27 Turn Out the Stars (Evans)
    20:24 Autumn Leaves (Jacques Prévert, Joseph Kosma, Johnny Mercer)
    24:40 Nardis (Miles Davis)

    An aptly titled album from the Bill Evans Trio, Quiet Now is the jazz pianist at his most ambient and cerebral. Accompanied only by the minimalist rhythm section of bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Marty Morell, Evans effortlessly deconstructs two pop standards, Harold Arlen's Sleeping Bee and his beloved Autumn Leaves, a Johnny Mercer tune that he played seemingly hundreds of times, along with three of his own compositions and Miles Davis' Nardis, a song Evans made his own through endless reintepretation over the course of many years. Morrel is a steady, unobtrusive drummer with a light touch and, happily, not much of a tendency to show off and even less to solo. Gomez, the bassist Evans worked with the longest in his career, knows how to anticipate his boss' every move, no matter how seemingly random, and his solo spots are those rarities, economical and well-constructed bass solos that are actually fun to listen to. Quiet Now is a bit too workmanlike to be one of the greatest Bill Evans Trio releases -- it's more solidly competent than divinely inspired, but Evans' playing, as always, is marvelous.

  • Bill Evans Chords: A Tutorial on their Voicing

    11:45

    Here's a quick look at how Bill Evans tended to voice his left hand jazz piano chords: usually rootless, with higher degrees. I'll also share some of Evans' classic voicings, like his voicings of minor 11 or dominant 13th chords. Overall, this video should give you general ideas on how voice these chords in context and into the style of Bill Evans as a whole. I hope you enjoy!

    Added Dec 4, 2018: One of the viewers, X YZ, has notated the chords using the online Muse service which is free for all. He has kindly shared the link to his work:

Themes like absence, loss, death (so close to Bill, after the death of his brother, and his friend Scott La Faro) are expressed in the musical research & development of this cd, a pearl in his Jazz recording history. This is the title track, #2, You Must Believe in Spring.

    Notes:

    Some Day My Prince Will Come was written by Larry Morey (lyrics) & Frank Churchill (music) for the 1937 Walt Disney animated film SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS.

    This is the third incarnation of Bill Evans' great '60s piano trios, playing at a very high level. Chuck Israels' bass work, in particular, is nothing short of virtuosic. His playing shows the influence of Scott LaFaro -- especially in his use of counterpoint -- but he's supremely inventive.

    Background:

    Evans' first (and greatest) trio featured the irreplaceable Scott LaFaro on double bass and Paul Motian on drums. After LaFaro's tragic death in a car accident in 1961 (at age 25), Evans was so overcome with grief that he didn't play again publicly for almost a year. In early '62, he reformed his trio and hired Chuck Israels to replace LaFaro. Motian departed the trio in 1964, and was replaced by Larry Bunker.

    If you're interested in hearing the greatest of all piano trios, here are the CDs to buy:

  • Bill Evans - Heres That Rainy Day

    5:25

    Here's That Rainy Day is a popular song with music by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke, published in 1953. It was introduced by Dolores Gray in the Broadway musical Carnival in Flanders.

    William John Evans, known as Bill Evans (August 16, 1929 -- September 15, 1980), was an American jazz pianist and composer who mostly worked in a trio setting. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time, and is considered by some to have been the most influential post-World War II jazz pianist. Evans's use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically independent, singing melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today. Unlike many other jazz musicians of his time, Evans never embraced new movements like jazz fusion or free jazz.

    Born in Plainfield, New Jersey, Evans was classically trained, and studied at Southeastern Louisiana University. In 1955, he moved to New York, where he worked with bandleader and theorist George Russell. In 1958, Evans joined Miles Davis's sextet, where he was to have a profound influence. In 1959, the band, then immersed in modal jazz, recorded Kind of Blue, the best-selling jazz album of all time.

    In late 1959, Evans left the Miles Davis band and began his career as a leader with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian, a group now regarded as a seminal modern jazz trio. In 1961, ten days after recording the highly acclaimed Sunday at the Village Vanguard and Waltz for Debby, LaFaro died in a car accident. After months of seclusion, Evans re-emerged with a new trio, featuring bassist Chuck Israels.

    In 1963, Evans recorded Conversations with Myself, an innovative solo album using the unconventional (in jazz solo recordings) technique of overdubbing over himself. In 1966, he met bassist Eddie Gomez, with whom he would work for eleven years. Several successful albums followed, such as Bill Evans at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Alone and The Bill Evans Album, among others. In 1973, he married Nenette Zazzara, with whom he had a son, Evan, who became a film composer.

    Despite his success as a jazz artist, Evans suffered personal loss and struggled with drug abuse. Both his girlfriend Elaine and his brother Harry committed suicide, and he was a long time user of heroin, and later of cocaine. As a result, his financial stability, personal relationships and musical creativity suffered until his death, in 1980.

    Many of his compositions, such as Waltz for Debby, have become standards and have been played and recorded by many artists. Evans was honored with 31 Grammy nominations and seven awards, and was inducted in the Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame.

  • Bill Evans Trio - Köln Concert .

    58:35

    In 1976, the Bill Evans Trio was still actively touring, though the pianist was recording very little at the time. In spite of his well-documented personal problems, Evans was still very much in control when he sat down to play. This CD returns to print a concert recorded for broadcast in Koln, Germany, that was previously issued by Westwind as In His Own Way (a release that incorrectly gave Rome as the location). Evans is in superb form, while bassist Eddie Gomez is featured extensively during this performance, shining particularly brightly with his phenomenal runs in the leader's Time Remembered, 34 Skidoo, and Sugar Plum. Drummer Eliot Zigmund, still a relative newcomer at the time, is also a powerful presence. Three bonus tracks feature the 1972 trio with drummer Marty Morell, from a Milan concert. The highlight is easily Evans' fiendishly difficult T.T.T. (Twelve Tone Tune). Serious Bill Evans fans should consider this live compilation to be an essential purchase.(AllMusic)...

    Bill Evans and his trio played at Ilkka Kuusisto's house in Lauttasaari, Helsinki.

    8:18 Interview
    11:50 Alfie
    16:58 Interview
    21:09 Nardis


    Ilkka Kuusisto is a Finnish composer, and his two sons are famous violinists. Ilkka played some jazz on his spare time. His son Pekka Kuusisto is the first Finnish violinist who has won the Sibelius violin contest. Pekka has also played with, for example, finnish jazz trio Trio Töykeät, with Iiro Rantala playing the piano. Iiro is one of Finland's greatest jazz pianists. And has a great sense of humour. His current trio has a guitar player and a beat box. Yes, a beat box! That's crazy, but somehow it works. Yes, I was in heaven when I happened toturn on my TV last summer. I couldn't believe that this video existed, or that Bill had even been to Finland!

    Of course he travelled to Sweden many times, and that's obvious, because we [the Finnish people] always lose to Sweden in some way. May it be ice hockey or sense of fashion. The best thing about this video might be the fact how happy Bill seems to be. He's joking and smiling. With the performances, you can sense there's a bit of tension in the air, but when the last piece, Nardis, ends, people start to clap and Bill cannot help smiling. That's mega- awesome. Unfortunately there's few seconds missing in that YouTube clip, but you get the idea.
    Before the 1970 footage, YLE showed a new Ilkka Kuusisto interview, where Ilkka told about Evans' trio coming to visit his house. The grand piano was brand new, and Evans liked it. Bill gave Ilkka the At The Montreaux Jazz Festival vinyl [album] as a present. Ilkka also told that he liked Bill's touch on the piano, and that Bill's playing was always on a high level. In the audience there's some Finnish jazz people, and I happen to know one of them! Jukka Haavisto is a vibrafonist, who's in his late 70's now, but still playing actively. He told me about a year ago that he had seen Bill 'live', and mentioned that Bill's head was always near the keys. That's what he remembered best. I just didn't know that he had seen Bill live here in Finland. I get to talk to Jukka soon, haven't seen him in a while. When I first met Jukka, we talked about jazz in general, and I told him that Bill is absolutely my favorite pianist. Being old and wise, he answered casually and said: Well, isn't he everyone's favorite? That was great!
