Bill Evans (1929-1980) is one of the highest regarded jazz pianists in the history of jazz. His harmonic and rhythmic language in combination with superb taste and technical perfection places him in a category by himself. His style of harmonization and improvisation has been an inspiration to countless pianists as well as other instrumentalists in the field of jazz. This book of original musical studies and analyses by Corey Christiansen and Per Danielsson is designed to help you develop your own personal improvising style. It presents numerous musical lines with chord symbols in the style of Bill Evans, grouped by the harmony they can be used against. The accompanying play-along CD provides a rhythm section backup for each of the exercises. To help the player master all keys, each section also has a play-along on the CD that modulates around the circle of fourths. Some of the techniques used in the style of Bill Evans are discussed and examples shown, helping musicians analyze each of the ideas presented, further insuring mastery of these ideas. When assimilated into the student's musical vocabulary, these ideas will help students create their own original jazz solos.
