Another Thought

I wanted to post this yesterday. For dinner, we put on a Bill Evans CD, Live at the Village Vanguard. Every time I hear Bill Evans play, it will always remind me of Paul. On this album is "My Romance" I can recall Paul saying "let's play Myra". He also once said the John Coltrane's tune "Vigil" was calle our by Elvin Jones, "Virgil".

What was important and the thing that makes me think of him is how Bill plays piano like a drummer. Not only is the harmonic stuff unique and complex, but the rhythms are, too. Hearing that and understanding that Bill's piano playing is like a constant drum solo, one more thing to thank Paul for pointing out!
