Overview

Passion and scholarship intersect in this biography in order to narrate the complex and oftentimes dramatic life of Bill Evans, one of the most influential and innovative pianists in the history of jazz music and, according to many experts, one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. The testimonies from his friends and colleagues compiled in this biography introduce us to an exceptional human being who dedicated himself to music with a combination of purity, energy, and modesty uncommon among those who live in the spotlight. Peter Pettinger, a classically trained pianist with significant recordings of his own, narrates Evans’s personal and professional trajectory, explains his successes and tragedies, describes the architecture of his music, analyzes his enormous legacy, and, above all else, engages his well-trained ear in the various textures of a fascinating body of work.

 

La pasión y la erudición se hermanan en esta biografía para recorrer la compleja y a veces dramática vida de Bill Evans, uno de los pianistas más influyentes e innovadores en la historia del jazz y, según muchos entendidos, uno de los grandes músicos del siglo XX. Los testimonios aquí recogidos de sus amigos y colegas nos presentan a un ser humano excepcional que se entregó a la música con una mezcla de pureza, energía y modestia no muy común entre quienes viven una vida de fama. Peter Pettinger, pianista de formación clásica con importantes grabaciones a sus espaldas, narra la trayectoria personal y profesional de Evans, explica sus logros y sus tragedias, describe la arquitectura de su música, analiza su enorme legado y, por encima de todo, pone su bien entrenado oído a escuchar las variadas texturas de una obra fascinante.
