Image of Bill Evans


Few musicians seemed less likely to make an impact on the New York jazz scene in the late Fifties than Bill Evans(1929-80), whose introspective solos and delicate touch were far removed from what was commonly considered "hard bop." Yet Evans was indeed heard, and quickly became one of the most influential musicians on any instrument of the last 40 years.

Product Description

Product Description

A world-class saxophonist who first made his mark during the 1980s with such jazz greats as Miles Davis and John McLaughlin, Bill Evans has continued to explore a variety of adventurous settings as a bandleader from slamming funk-fusion through hip-hop-jazz to his innovative 2006 recording 'Soulgrass'.

The unique hybrid of bluegrass, jazz, funk and soul on 'Soulgrass', is taken a step further on 'The Other Side Of Something'. With the sound of banjo prominent in the mix, Evans underscores the proceedings with tight sax section arrangements which have him overdubbing tenor, alto and baritone sax parts. Banjo innovator Bela Fleck appears on three tracks with Ryan Cavannaugh providing the all-important banjo sound elsewhere. Virtuoso fretless electric bassist Richard Bona appears on three tracks (one with special guest trumpeter Randy Brecker) and Victor Wooten, The Flecktones' resident bassist, is joined by Santana drummer Dennis Chambers on the rest of the tracks. Other special guests include Nashville session ace Sam Bush on mandolin and Pat Bergeson on guitar Christian Howes on fiddle, Joel Rosenblatt on drums and Jim Beard on keyboards.

Bill Evans - (saxophones), Bela Fleck - (banjo), Ryan Cavannaugh - (banjo), Randy Brecker - (trumpet), Richard Bona - (bass), Victor Wooten - (bass), Dennis Chambers - (drums), Sam Bush - (mandolin), Pat Bergeson - (guitar), Christian Howes - (fiddle), Joel Rosenblatt -(drums), Jim Beard - (keyboards)


The writing is more confident and the breadth of sound much wider than 'Soulgrass'...the album is seriously good fun. -- Jazzwise, (Andy Robson), February 2008

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds really good 20 Jun 2013
By STorres
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After some time without buying a Bill Evans album this has been like a fresh air. It sounds Evans, but it sounds quite different since those Push, Touch or Escape. He sounds different with banjos, mandolins and fiddles around... And if you see who is playing you cannot believe it. Richard Bona, Dennis Chambers, Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten, Randy Brecker... Could not sound good??
