Pianist Brent Jarvis will be joined by Ryan Oliver on saxophones, Ken Lister on bass, and Hans Verhoeven on drums to perform the music of Bill Evans. Keith Allison will also join on piano allowing for Brent to play melodica in homage to Evan’s collaboration with the chromatic harmonica player Toots Thielemans Drawing from Evans’ iconic originals and often played standards the band will implement Bill's aesthetic space interplay and expressiveness as the point of departure for the evening of music.


“… The player with the skills and sensitivity to master it’s incredible expressiveness can personalize the piano to such an extent that it seems as if it were built for him and him alone… Such is the eloquent introspective of Bill Evans.” …Chick Corea " captivating...a collaboration between the sensual and the intellectual .. Music that sparks the senses and transcends genres. Intricate and sublime- if the medium is the message then this music is the medium!" Laura Fernandez JAZZ.FM91 Toronto Bill Evans was one of our greatest composers of jazz in modern time. He has inspired many musicians and people around the world to really listen to the music and feel the message and be alive with the spaces between the notes.
