just downloaded my copy of cinesamples' "piano in blue", and on a wave of enthusiasm I've done a quick rendition in Overture of a solo by Evans on "how my heart sings". Love Overture, piano in blue, love everything :D

Lovely!
The original version from 1962.
One of my all-time favorites, and a marvelous rendering.

You even manage to evoke Israels and Motian (but I was hoping you'd put in the bass solo!)

Our tastes in Jazz are very similar, Roberto, and you have done a marvelous job of recreating this piece!

I grew up in New York and got to see Bill Evans live at the Village Vanguard and other places very often.

The last time I saw him live was 1975 at a small club in Bloomington, Indiana (home of Indiana University, which did not feel a need to have him do anything at the music school) with Eddie Gomez and Elliot Zigmund.

You have made my day begin with a smile, Roberto!!

Jim

thank you so much, Jim!
Bill Evans' music has touched my soul since my teens, when first listening to jazz... I envy you for being able to hear his trio at the Vanguard, though I heard him live in Italy, in the summer of 1980, with Johnson and La Barbera. A couple months before he passed away. I love his "Moonbeams" and "How my hart sings" albums, even more than the recordings with Scott La Faro, for some reason.
Thank you again,

Roberto

Uhuh, a quick rendition! Imagine what this guy can do when he has time to make a pro rendition (haha). I'd wished making such great renditions. And the piece, just wonderful. As Arthur Rubinstein said about Maurizio Pollini "this guy can play as nobody among us ever can", watch this Roberto-guy carefully. Marvellous. :D

Bill Evans and Glenn Gould admired one another greatly.

At least one of Bill Evans's recordings (the triple-tracked one) was done on Glenn Gould's piano.

If my schedule ever permits, I will do some Evans using Garritan instruments.

NO pianist, classical or jazz or otherwise, has moved me like Bill Evans moves me, even 32 years after his death.
