Shanachie Releases Bill Evans DVD

Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist Bill Evans, best known for his work with Miles Davis and his own band, the Bill Evans Trio, is the subject of a new DVD that was released on Shanachie Entertainment on Jan. 30th. The Bill Evans Trio-The Oslo Concerts features two separate and heretofore unreleased Bill Evans Trio concerts, one from October 1966 (with bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Axel Riel) and another from August 1980 (with bassist Mark Johnson and drummer Joe LaBarbera), eight years before Evans’ death. The performances showcase some of Evans’ classic songs, such as “Autumn Leaves,” “Days of Wine and Roses,” “Stella by Starlight” and Davis’ “Nardis.” The DVD also includes exclusive interview footage of Evans discussing his music and the contemporary jazz scene.
