From The 70s by Bill Evans

From The 70’s gives Bill Evans listeners an opportunity to hear five previously unreleased tracks from the late great jazz pianists’ repertoire. Some of the tracks have Evans playing an electronic piano such as "The Nature of Things" and "Show-Type Tune." It comes as a nice surprise how lovely it all sounds. I have become accustomed, as many folks have, to listening to Evan’s play an acoustic piano such as a Steinway; I found out rather quickly that he was just as adept at playing an electronic keyboard. "Gone With The Wind" is an opulent slice of heaven as are all the other beautiful pieces. The richness and vivacity of his music brought out all the rich colors of jazz into full bloom.

Bill Evans was one of kind, its too bad he had to exit prematurely. He left behind a large catalog of recordings that we will be enjoying for years to come, so it’s as though he is still with us.
