Bill Evans (1929-1980) is a jazz pianist who helped to lay down the canon of repertoire and style. In addition, his use of impressionistic harmonies and phrasing make him one of the most pathos laden piano players I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. As such, I have spent years listening to his records and find myself on a perpetual quest to enjoy and absorb all of his albums.
Enter the Sunday morning routine.
This morning, and most Sunday's since 2004, I have woken up, made my coffee and eggs, and put on a Bill Evans record to amplify the beauty and simplicity of this wonderful scene. There is something serene in this action that brings me back every week. Today I would like to invite you to share this ritual with me as I present you with a video option for your own Bill Evans Sunday.
