THE BILL EVANS
Our good friend
Brian Hennessey, an Evans scholar, and a close friend of Bill's
from the UK, (written about in Pettinger's Evans biography). His
site has an extensive listing of materials in the phenomenal library
he maintains -- interviews, recordings and so much more.
EVANS -TIME REMEMBERED
A nice tribute site with a formidable bio done by a European cardiologist--a
serious Evans fan from The Netherlands (!), with many Evans links
of interest, artwork, pics, and some MIDI files. And it's all just
been redesigned, with album covers listed by each record label,
info on both Helen Keane and Gene Lees, sidemen pics and bios, and
clever Piano Timelines, Evans, Jazz and Classical links and much
more. . It is very impressive, so check it out!
"THE UNIVERSAL MIND OF BILL EVANS"
One incredible video or DVD (from 1966, featuring
Bill playing "Star Eyes", "Very Early", "Time
Remembered". etc.) with the pianist conversing with his brother, Harry Evans about jazz and classical music, teaching, approaches
to learning jazz, and more . A landmark presentation that also briefly
features Steve Allen.
EVANS at ALL ABOUT JAZZ.COM -The
