Remembering the great and influential Bill Evans. Here he is playing “Waltz For Debby.”
Evans played on the immortal Miles Davis album Kind of Blue, which he shaped nearly as much as Davis himself did, and soon after led one of the greatest-ever jazz trios, a group destroyed by the death of his young bassist Scott La Faro.
Evans had a long and fruitful career. We’ll salute him around the stereo this evening.
