Jack Reilly: The Harmony Of Bill Evans - Volume 2

Books and CDs | Piano

Publisher: Hal Leonard
Composer: Bill Evans
Author: Jack Reilly
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Bill Evans died in 1980 but the compositional legacy he left behind is forever expanding. In Reilly's second volume, he provides a deeper appreciation and understanding of Evans' compositions. It includes two important theory chapters, plus ten of Bill's most passionate and melodically gorgeous works. The voicing charts for all ten songs are more complex than volume one and pianistically more demanding, yet always worth the effort. The subjects of modulation and key relationships that are discussed in each chapter will help the player memorize faster and improvise with more facility; not an easy task when performing Evans' music.

The "Lament for Bill" in chapter 13 is the author's tribute to the genius of this great artist. The accompanying audio CD will add to the enjoyment, understanding, and appreciation of the written examples.
