1. Thanks, bookmarking for later.

Evans was one of the true geniuses and innovators of jazz piano. He’s often described as “lyrical” or “an impressionist,” but his blues sense was fantastic and he could swing his ass off, too.

He was a great accompanist as well as an incandescent soloist. No slouch as a composer, either.

And he got into some experimental stuff as well: “Conversations With Myself,” the album where he overdubbed electric piano duets; and the record he made with George Russell with the track “Event V” among others (“Living Time”?).

Thanks for sharing this!

4. Gotta go to bed, but the first 25 minutes were amazing!

This guy was ridiculous! His harmonic vision was unique, and his gorgeous playing remains a shining beacon for us mere mortals. I could eat those thick chords for dessert!

What a household that must have been, with the Evans brothers growing up and learning together.
