Jazz has a hold on me. I think of it as being the vernacular sitting alongside the classical.
If you never dibbed your toes in, now’s the time to try it out.
Bill in brief
Way in: “The studio album Everybody Digs. Peace Piece (which starts at 26m 50s ) is one of the simplest jazz tracks ever, a thing of extraordinary beauty: same theme all the way through, a series of soft chords in the left hand with the gentlest improvisation in the right.”
If you don’t believe me, read the notes on the sleeve. E.g. “I’ve sure learned a lot from Bill Evans. He plays the piano the way it should be played.” – Miles Davis.
