Bill Evans on Toppermost

Over on the Toppermost website I’ve done a post on the supreme jazz pianist, Bill Evans.

It’s via Miles Davis (see Toppermost #157) that many people – including myself – were introduced to him:
“Bill had this quiet fire that I loved on piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall. I had to change the way the band sounded again for Bill’s style by playing different tunes, softer ones at first.”
Miles Davis (“Miles: The Autobiography”)

Here’s a track that didn’t make my final selection, “Waltz for Debbie”.
