'The Greatest Jazz Pianist of All Time'? - That distant rumbling noise you can hear must be Art Tatum, Bud Powell, Thelonius Monk and half a dozen more turning in their graves. But though Evans may not be definitively the greatest of all time (no one is), he's certainly up there with the greats, as one of the most original, sensitive and downright romantic of jazz musicians.

I have heard people deny that he's a jazz pianist at all - though I don't know what else he is - and it's true that he's not entirely typical: white, middle-class, classically trained and not particularly imbued with the spirit of the blues. He is the pianist on most of the tracks on Miles Davis' classic 'Kind of Blue' (indeed he wrote or co-wrote a couple of the tracks 'Blue in Green' and 'Flamenco Sketches', though they're credited to Miles on the album), but for the bluesiest number, 'Freddie Freeloader', Miles turned to Wynton Kelly, and you can see why - Evans' mode is always more Debussy-esque than Gutbucket.

And if you don't like bass solos, then this won't be for you (though if anything can convert you, this will) because his trios always feature extended interplay between piano and bass (especially when Scott LaFaro is playing) and indeed with the drums as well. This is perhaps his most original contribution to the medium of the jazz trio: instead of a soloist supported by a rhythm section, as you might find with Oscar Peterson or Erroll Garner (not that there's anything wrong with that), there is a continually shifting and intimate interplay between the three instruments (or, in his collaborations with Jim Hall, with a guitar, or even - in his groundbreaking multi-tracked sessions - with himself.

Bill Evans can do wrong in my eyes. He was Mr. Jazz Piano. Sublime. He had the 'Bill Evans Sound'. Listen to Kind of Blue and you'll know what I mean.
