When a friend of mine lend me a copy of the " Best of Bill Evans " I realized instantly he was a major force on the jazz scene. An artist like Coltrane, who influenced practically every jazz artist of his day. Like a brilliant painter Bill Evan's profoundly changed the pallet of piano keys.
He started out as a gifted impressive young bop pianist influenced by geniuses like Bud Powell, Horace Silver and Tristano. His first album " Know What I Mean " brought him to the attention of Miles Davis leading to almost a full year as part of his band.
I think Evan's genius and legacy is based on " Peace Piece " a solo performance of genius improvisation. I think it is his most brilliant piece. When I listen to it hairs on my back rise. It's like listening to MLK's " I Have A Dream Speech" it touches my soul with such deep religiosity. Words are meaningless to explain the haunting, spiritual, afterglow of that piece. It touched the very core of my being. It reminds me of Mozart's " Moonlight Sonata". I was awed by the sweep and grandeur of his improvisation. " Peace Piece" is a solo that seems to toy with the meaning of" nature, humanity, and God----that existence is shrouded in radiant mystery and maybe both infinite and eternal. It's as if encoded in his music are clues to the secret of our humanity. Elusive signals.
Bill Evan's was a heroin addict. But his addiction never betrayed his genius. His albums of the summer of 1962 owed their existence to his addiction. I find it fascinating how his personal demons , like quite a few jazzmen, seemed to propel them into a jazz universe unattainable without getting high.
I can write about their addictions but I don't live in the conformist, racist, Eisenhower cold war era.

I heard "Peace Piece" on a local radio station for the first time. I hunted Bill Evans down on Amazon and found this terrific album. It is great music to have playing in the background when you are trying to concentrate.

What's all the obsession with Peace Piece? It sounds like a drunk trying to play Erik Satie or a cheap rip off of Charles Ives' 'The Unanswered Question'. My theory is that Evans didn't want to play it in concert because he wasn't impressed with it. Anyways buy the album for the other tunes.
