Bill Evans Solo
Excellent intelligent arrangements and well worth having. But why do music publishers persist in publishing music books like this where the pages won't fold flat and keep closing while you're trying to play. I believe the trade name for this type of book binding is 'Perfect Binding' but it's anything but perfect.

Bill Evans - Solos Series Vol. 19
This is a beautiful compilation of songs, and what's more, it is beautifully arranged. Brent Edstrom has done an outstanding job here, and I find myself going back time and time again to this collection of songs.

Another excellent volume in the Hal Leonard Jazz Piano Solo series. Captures much of the essence of the Evans style. The left hand voicings are very typical as are the inner voice movements and right hand lines. The chords are fully notated such that the arrangements would be well suited for using with a bass and drums for a full Evans trio treatment. Contains many standards covered by Evans and one original, namely "Letter To Evan". An excellent introduction to the Bill Evans style.
