    Bill Evans is considered as one of the greatest jazz pianists. Influenced by impressionist composers such as Claude Debussy or Maurice Ravel, he’s famous for revisiting the jazz repertoire, his compositions “Waltz for Debby”, “Very Early”, and his collaboration with Miles Davis.

    The Solo Sessions, Vol. 1 is an album by jazz pianist Bill Evans, released in 1989.
    Evans recorded The Solo Sessions, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 at the same session, on January 10, 1963 and the tracks were originally released as part of Bill Evans: The Complete Riverside Recordings in 1984.[2] The Bill Evans Memorial Library states these sessions were never intended for release.

    Evans recorded The Solo Sessions, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 at the same session, on January 10, 1963. The Bill Evans Memorial Library states these sessions were never intended for release.

    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 - Moon Beams

    39:01

    Moon Beams is a 1962 album by jazz musician Bill Evans, and the first trio album recorded by Evans after the death of Scott LaFaro. With Chuck Israels on bass taking the place of LaFaro, Evans recorded several songs during these May and June 1962 sessions. Moon Beams contains a collection of ballads recorded during this period. The more uptempo tunes were put on How My Heart Sings!. In 2012, it was released a new remastered edition which includes three previously unreleased alternate takes.

    Personnel: Bill Evans (p) Chuck Israels (b) Paul Motian (dr)
    Released: Mid December 1962
    Recorded: May 17, 1962 (#5,9) May 29, 1962 (#1, 8) June 2, 1962 (#2-4, 6-7) June 5, 1962 (#10-11)

    Writing for Allmusic, music critic Thom Jurek wrote of the album ...selections are so well paced and sequenced the record feels like a dream... Moonbeams was a startling return to the recording sphere and a major advancement in his development as a leader.

    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.

    Bill Evans - ALL THE BEST (FULL ALBUM)
    Donwload on Google Play:

    William John Bill Evans (August 16| 1929 äóñ 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 in 1929| he was classically trained| and studied at Southeastern Louisiana University and the Mannes School of Music| where he majored in composition and received the Artist Diploma. In 1955| he moved to New York City| 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 Gí_mez| 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.

    Virtual Museum Exhibit: Pasos Peace Museum (visit: www. pasospeacemuseum.org)—Bill Evans's Peace Piece is an unrehearsed modal composition that he recorded for his Everybody Digs Bill Evans LP in 1958. It is hailed as one of the most beautiful and evocative solo piano improvisations ever recorded.

  • 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.

    “I believe that all people are in possession of what might be called a universal musical mind. Any true music speaks with this universal mind, to the universal mind in all people. The understanding that results will vary only in so far as people have or have not been conditioned to the various styles of music in which the universal mind speaks. Consequently, often some effort and exposure is necessary in order to understand some of the music coming from a different period or a different culture than that to which the listener has been conditioned. I do not agree that the layman’s opinion is less of a valid judgement of music than that of the professional musician. In fact, I would often rely more on the judgement of a sensitive layman than that of a professional, since the professional, because of his constant involvement with the mechanics of music, must fight to preserve the naivety that the layman already possesses.“

    In 1966, legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans (August 16, 1929–September 15, 1980) sat down with his composer brother, Harry Evans, for an intense and deeply insightful conversation later released as Universal Mind of Bill Evans: The Creative Process and Self-Teaching. From filmmaker William Meier comes this gorgeous cinematic adaptation of Evans’s thoughts on the autodidactic quality of creativity and the value of working at the intersection of clarity, complexity, and spontaneity.
    The whole process of learning the facility of being able to play jazz is to take these problems from the outer level in, one by one, and to stay with it at a very intense, conscious-concentration level until that process becomes secondary and subconscious. Now, when that becomes subconscious, then you can begin concentrating on that next problem, which will allow you to do a little bit more.

    I don’t consider myself as talented as many people but in some ways that was an advantage because I didn’t have a great facility immediately so I had to be more analytical and in a way — that forced me to build something.

    Most people just don’t realize the immensity of the problem and, either because they can’t conquer it immediately, think that they haven’t got the ability, or they’re so impatient to conquer it that they never do see it through. If you do understand the problem then you can enjoy your whole trip through.

    People tend to approximate the product rather than attacking it in a realistic, true way at any elementary level — regardless of how elementary — but it must be entirely true and entirely real and entirely accurate. They would rather approximate the entire problem than to take a small part of it and be real and true about it. To approximate the whole thing in a vague way gives you a feeling that you’ve more or less touched the thing, but in this way you just lead yourself toward confusion and ultimately you’re going to get so confused that you’ll never find your way out.

    It is true of any subject that the person that succeeds in anything has the realistic viewpoint at the beginning and [knows] that the problem is large and that he has to take it a step at a time and that he has to enjoy the step-by-step learning procedure. They’re trying to do a thing in a way that is so general [that] they can’t possibly build on that. If they build on that, they’re building on top of confusion and vagueness and they can’t possibly progress. If you try to approximate something that is very advanced and don’t know what you’re doing, you can’t advance.

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.

  • 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!

    Explorations is an album by jazz pianist Bill Evans that was originally released on Riverside label in 1961. The album won the Billboard Jazz Critics Best Piano LP poll for 1961.

    Personnel: Bill Evans (p) Scott LaFaro (b) Paul Motian (dr)
    Released: End of March 1961
    Recorded: February 2, 1961

    I Wish I Knew [Take 2]

    Explorations was the second album Evans recorded with his trio of Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums. Evans considered it one of his favorites from this period. Producer Orrin Keepnews in the liner notes talks about the two extra pieces released on CD, Beautiful Love (take 1) and The Boy Next Door; the first version of Beautiful Love to be included in the original LP was a second take, in fact as Keepnews specifies, it is not the usual case of a second attempt that immediately followed the first. Early in this date, he played this number once; we both approved, and he moved on to something else. Much later, he decided to try a second 'Beautiful Love', which he later preferred. The Boy Next Door was instead set aside, at the time, because of the limited space of LP support.

    The album was remastered and reissued by Original Jazz Classics in 2011 with two previously unissued alternate takes.

    The album won the Billboard Jazz Critics Best Piano LP poll for 1961.

    David Rickert of All About Jazz wrote: ...Evans demands to be heard, seducing you with his indelibly emotional playing... The trio works magic here, breathing fresh air into standards such as 'How Deep Is the Ocean?' and 'Beautiful Love' and creating the illusion that these songs were written just so someone like Evans could play them. The highlight of the album is 'Elsa,' which is one of the most beautiful piano ballads on record. Writing for Allmusic, critic Thom Jurek said of the album: Evans, with Paul Motian and Scott LaFaro, was onto something as a trio, exploring the undersides of melodic and rhythmic constructions that had never been considered by most... Explorations is an extraordinary example of the reach and breadth of this trio at its peak.

    Nardis, Molde Jazz Festival, Norway, August, 9 1980. Bill Evans, piano; Marc Johnson, bass and Joe LaBarbera, drums.

    With the passage of time, Bill Evans has become an entire school unto himself for pianists and a singular mood unto himself for listeners. There is no more influential jazz-oriented pianist -- only McCoy Tyner exerts nearly as much pull among younger players and journeymen -- and Evans has left his mark on such noted players as Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, and Brad Mehldau. Borrowing heavily from the impressionism of Debussy and Ravel, Evans brought a new, introverted, relaxed, lyrical, European classical sensibility into jazz -- and that seems to have attracted a lot of young conservatory-trained pianists who follow his chord voicings to the letter in clubs and on stages everywhere. Indeed, classical pianists like Jean-Yves Thibaudet have recorded note-for-note transcriptions of Evans' performances, bringing out the direct lineage with classical composers. In interviews, Evans often stressed that pianists should thoroughly learn technique and harmony so that they can put their inspiration to maximum use. Since he already had those tools in hand, he worked very hard on his touch, getting the special, refined tone that he wanted out of a piano. He also tried to democratize the role of the bassist and drummer in his succession of piano trios, encouraging greater contrapuntal interplay.

    Bespectacled, shy, soft-spoken, and vulnerable, Evans was not a good fit into the rough-and-tumble music business. In part to shield himself from the outside world, he turned to drugs -- first heroin, and later, cocaine -- which undoubtedly shortened his life. In interviews, though, he sounds thoroughly in control, completely aware of what he wanted from his art, and colleagues report that he displayed a wicked sense of humor. Nowadays, Evans seems to be immune from criticism, but there was a time when he was accused of not being able to swing, or pilloried for an effete approach to jazz that was alien to its African sources. However, there are plenty of Evans recordings which show that he could indeed flash the technique and swing as hard as anyone when he wanted to, especially early in his career. He simply chose a different path for himself, one entirely reflective of his inward personality -- and that's what seems to touch listeners inside and outside jazz the most. Indeed, the cult for Evans' recordings is big enough to justify the existence of six large, expensive boxed sets of his output: four from Fantasy's archives, one from Warner Bros., and the biggest one from Verve. A newcomer, though, would be better-advised to sample Evans in smaller doses. Since the bulk of his recordings were made with the same piano-bass-drums instrumentation, and his career was not marked by dramatic shifts in style, prolonged listening to hours upon hours of his trio recordings can lead to monotony (after all, you can even overdose on Bach, as great as he was).

    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.

  • Bill Evans - Everybody Digs Bill Evans

    48:58

    Everybody Digs Bill Evans is an album by jazz musician Bill Evans, released in early 1959 on the Riverside label.

    Personnel: Bill Evans (p) Sam Jones (b) Philly Joe Jones (dr)
    Released: End of March 1959
    Recorded: December 15, 1958 Reeves Sound Studios, New York
    Label: Riverside RLP 12-291
    Producer: Orrin Keepnews

    22:24 Epilogue (Take 1)
    22:59 Tenderly (Gross)
    26:32 Peace Piece (Evans)
    33:10 What is There to Say (Duke, Harburg)
    38:01 Oleo (Rollins)
    42:02 Epilogue (Take 2) (Evans)
    42:44 Some Other Time (Bernstein, Comden, Green)

    Everybody Digs Bill Evans was the artist's second album, done two years after his first record as a leader. Even though his producer tried to encourage him to record again sooner, the highly self-critical Evans felt he had nothing new to say before this album.

    The recording captures Evans at a time when he was into playing block chords. That combined with his expert use of pedals gave him a fresh, distinctive sound that had never been heard before on the piano.

    It was reissued in 1987 with one bonus track.

    William John Bill Evans (pronunciation: /ˈɛvəns/, 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.

    Lyric:
    The falling leaves drift by the window
    The autumn leaves of red and gold
    I see your lips, the summer kisses
    The sun-burned hands I used to hold
    Since you went away the days grow long
    And soon I'll hear old winter's song
    But I miss you most of all my darling
    When autumn leaves start to fall
