Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Bill Evans, the most European of jazz pianists, combines Skryabin, Chopin, Ravel, Satie and jazz in a wonderful way that brings European and Afro-American music together. His music always sings; he doesn’t just play notes on the piano, he constructs beautiful melodies. He personifies a kind of jazzy romanticism mixed with the spiky power of bebop. His phrasing is always subtle, elegant and singing, and he plays with the utmost expression, without ever using mere effects. Bill Evans has always been an inspiration to me, and I wanted this album to be an homage to him.” - Manuel Rocheman “Bill Evans, the most European of jazz pianists, combines Skryabin, Chopin, Ravel, Satie and jazz in a wonderful way that brings European and Afro-American music together.
