Synopsis

The Bill Evans Trio: The Oslo Concerts
Universally heralded as the most influential jazz pianist of the 20th century, Bill Evans introduced a unique, laid-back, introverted, and classically-influenced approach to the art that pulled heavily from Debussy and Ravel. In the process, Evans garnered an unholy number of fans, imitators, and musical protégés, and his music continues to undergo extensive interpretation and reinterpretation as the decades pass, given the unusually strong emphasis placed by Evans on technique and harmonization as the basis of all improvisatory work. The title of the 70 minute home video release The Bill Evans Trio: The Oslo Concerts is deceptive; it actually features two separate trios headlined by Evans, in two concerts held fourteen years apart. In the first, filmed in 1966, Evans teams with bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Alex Riel on an Oslo stage. In the second, Evans performs with the fellow members of his final trio - bassist Mark Johnson and drummer Joe La Barbera - in Oslo, Norway, just prior to Evans's 1980 death from a hemorrhaging ulcer and bronchial pneumonia. Selections include: "Stella by Starlight," "The Days of Wine and Roses," "Autumn Leaves," and "Nardis." This represents one of the very few filmed Evans concerts available to the public. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
