Iain Ballamy & Gareth Williams – Celebrating the music of Bill Evans
A pioneer of post bop and modal jazz, Bill Evans rose to prominence after playing on the legendary and iconic Miles Davis album ‘Kind of blue’ before becoming a key figure as a composer and leader of his trio with Scott La Faro. The music is sophisticated and deep with almost orchestral harmonic qualities and a uniquely reflective character.
Gareth Williams is celebrated for his profound understanding of Evans’ music and his ability to portray it with the emotional gravitas it demands. Iain Ballamy is recognised internationally as an original, uncompromising and forward-thinking musician.
