Bill Evans (+ “More Than Timekeepers”)

September 15th marked the 35th anniversary of the passing of the late great piano genius, Bill Evans. Evans’ music is no stranger to Alloy. At the beginning of the year, I featured an episode highlighting a couple memorable Evan’s compositions. Also, last week I posted on Alloy’s Tumblr page an interview excerpt that features Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays discussing the significance of the track “September Fifteenth (dedicated to Bill Evans)” from their album “As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls,” explaining its connection to Bill’s passing. This week’s Alloy broadcast will shine a light on a few more of Evans’ classic tunes--it seems only fitting to honor an artist whose recording career spanned four decades. Ironically, shining a light on Bill Evans also provides an opportunity to include the next (short) installment to the ongoing “More Than Timekeepers: Percussive Voices” series started a year ago today! This week we listen to Paul Motian, who worked with Bill Evans, and living legend, Roy Haynes, a drummer in a class by himself. As always, if you miss the live Alloy show this week you can always catch the all-music, 24/7 “Alloy” station. Thanks for listening!
