Bill Evans - The Master. To this day his playing and compositions continue to inspire many musicians introducing them to a style of jazz piano that is timeless. I began listening to Bill Evans recordings a few years ago. My CD collection is growing quickly. I also started playing and studying his original compositions and arrangements. My musical mind is expanding as is my ability to play Jazz Piano, which is my passion. Little by little I am venturing into improvisation, which I liken to drawing outside the lines. I have a good guide, I would say.

I honor his memory and his contribution to Jazz this day.

Happy Birthday, Bill!

Congratulations Barbara. I would say be patient and the improvisation results will eventually come.
Bill is one of my favourite artists. A couple of years ago, a member here posted this inspiring video where Bill talks about learning improvisation.

Thank you, Custard apple-

I have this on cd. I watch it routinely. So great that he is so many pianists' favorite.

Be happy!
