Bill Evans, the pianist, is a towering figure acknowledged by the jazz world, fans, musicians and critics. However Bill Evans, the composer, has yet to take his place alongside the great masters of composition. Therein lies the sole purpose of this book. A compilation of articles – now revised and expanded – that originally appeared in the quarterly newsletter Letter from Evans, this unique folio features extensive analysis of Evans' work. Pieces examined include: B Minor Waltz • Funny Man • How Deep Is the Ocean • I Fall in Love Too Easily • I Should Care • Peri's Scope • Time Remembered • and Twelve Tone Tune.

Author Jack Reilly is a pianist, composer and educator in both the jazz and classical genres. He has chaired the Jazz Studies departments of the New England Conservatory of Music, Mannes College of Music, and The New School. He is presently Jazz Piano Professor at Rowan College in New Jersey.

  • January 04, 2008 Many thanks to Bill Evans and Jack Reilly

    Beautiful for entering the world of Bill Evans and for composing procedure opening a vast field for improvisation. Thank you very very much Mr Reilly, adding a new stone to the path opened (may be) by John Mehegan almost 45 years ago. Alain Pinsolle Vibraphone and Piano player.

  • November 26, 2007 not a transcription

    As far as I can make out, this book is an analysis of Bill Evans' harmonies, not a transcription of what he actually played on a recording. I wanted the latter because I am not so good at duplicating what I hear on the recording. (I'm not a professional...

    musician.)

  • May 31, 2006 Inside the genius of Bill Evans

    I have purchased this book 4 years ago and have yet to absorb all the chapters into my psyche. It's like great classical music; it just keeps growing and growing in it's power to inspire greatness in the beholder. Reilly has done the music community an invaluable service...

    by writing this book. Will there ever be a Volume two? Cordially SMO

  • June 12, 2003 Reilly expains Evans'mind !!

    Evans' music is transcendent in its beauty,form, melody and harmony. Jack Reilly takes us into the mind of this genius,loved by all,musician and layman alike and makes it more accessable while at the same time more ineluctable. Buy this book and you will come back to it...

    for the rest of your life. It took a genius to analyse a genius!!!!
