Hello from Kent,
If I were asked to pick one person as my “jazz idol,” I would not hesitate to say Bill Evans. In fact, I have been asked this, and that’s always my answer.
Today marks the anniversary of the death of this hugely influential jazz pianist, who passed away on this date in 1980.
Today I’m sharing two articles about Bill Evans, in honor of his memory. Thank you, Mr. Evans, for all that you have taught me (and still do), through your music, your life, and your legacy!
