EVANS Bill

EVANS BILL WILLIAM JOHN. (P)

Plainfield, New Jersey. 16/8/1929. – New York. 15/9/1980.

Le note estratte e preziose del suo pianoforte sono in assoluto il primo esempio del pianismo moderno e ne hanno fatto uno dei più grandi stilisti di tutti i tempi. Egli già a sette anni durante gli studi normali ha dimostrato una grande inclinazione alla musica, frequentando il Southeastern Louisiana College di New Orleans. Diplomatosi, il suo primo lavoro è stato con l’orchestra da ballo di Herbie Fields. Dopo il congedo militare nel 1954 ha deciso di continuare la carriera musicale, riprendendo a suonare nell’orchestra di Jerry Wald e nel contempo studiando armonia alla Manes School of Music. Nel 1955 ha accompagnato in una registrazione la cantante Lucy Reed, nel 1956 ha suonato con George Russell, poi con Tony Scott, infine il suo primo trio con Teddy Kotick al basso e Paul Motian alla batteria, con il quali ha registrato il primo disco come leader: “New Jazz Conception” e subito dopo “Everybody Digs Bill Evans”, che lui considera la sua opera più completa di sempre. Nel 1957 ha suonato con Charles Mingus e poi ha fatto parte del sestetto di Miles Davis, con il quale ha registrato una pietra miliare del jazz di tutti i tempi “Kind Of Blues”. Ha messo su un nuovo trio con il quale ha raggiunto la notorietà più completa., il trio con Scott LaFaro al basso e Paul Motian alla batteria. L’affiatamento di questo trio è stato perfetto, Evans concedeva ai partner massima libertà, molto spazio nel dialogo e nella improvvisazione. Nel 1961 purtroppo La Faro muore tragicamente e per Evans sarà un duro colpo. Dopo un periodo di inattività ha costituito un nuovo trio nel quale, l’amico scomparso, viene sostituito prima con Chuck Israel, poi con Gary Peacock ed infine con Eddie Gomez che è stato quello che ha fatto meno rimpiangere il vuoto lasciato da LaFaro. Ha registrato anche dei pezzi da solo che sono rimasti celebri anche perchè in alcuni ha usato, con molta intelligenza, la tecnica della sovraincisione. Ha registrato anche con Freddy Hubbard e Jim Hall, con Tony Scott, con Julian Adderley, con Stan Getz, con Lee Konitz, con il cantante Tony Bennett e con Toots Thielemans. La sua musica è riassunta principalmente nelle tre etichette: Riverside, Verve e Milestone. Pianista che sin dai primi anni della sua tormentata esistenza di bambino prodigio ha recato i segni del modernismo. Basta ascoltare poche note per riconoscerlo, per apprezzare la sua arte nel dialogare con i silenzi e con la pause e la sua ineguagliata capacità di esplorazione armonica. Il suo pianismo è una fusione originalissima di Bach e bebop, di swing e melodismo romantico dal tocco e dalla personalità inconfondibile. Una vita drammatica, con la sola compagnia di alcool e droga che lo hanno portano ad una morte prematura. La sua preziosa eredità sono un grande patrimonio discografico, un’arte piena di meraviglioso lirismo ed una lunga schiera di eredi, da Paul Bley a Keith Jarrett, da Brad Mehldau al nostro Enrico Pieranunzi, per citare i più famosi.

EVANS BILL WILLIAM. (ST)

Clarendon Hill, Illinois. 9/2/1958.

Ha iniziato a studiare musica a cinque anni e a tredici ha tenuto i suoi primi concerti di piano classico. Ha studiato clarinetto, sassofono tenore e soprano con Bunky Green, prima alla Università di Stato North Texas e poi nel 1977 al William Patterson College nel New Jersey. Ha seguito lezioni a New York con Dave Liebman e, nel 1980, su raccomandazione dello stesso Liebman è entrato nel gruppo di Miles Davis, dove ha ottenuto un grande successo. Nel 1982 ha registrato con il gruppo “Element” con Mark Egan e Danny Gottlieb e nel 1983 ha inciso il suo primo album da leader. Lasciato Davis ha suonato con John McLaughlin. Dopo un periodo nel quale si è dedicato soprattutto a scrivere musica, ha messo su un suo gruppo nel 1988. Ha suonato anche con Jim Beard, Mitchel Forman, Chuck Loeb, Victor Bailey, Darryl Jones e Tennis Chambers. Trascorso qualche tempo in Giappone, registrando diversi album, nel 1992 con il suo gruppo “Petit Blonde” ha registrato dal vivo in Germania, durante un tour europeo. Ha fatto parte di un gruppo organizzato per registrare gli standards di Duke Ellington e Billy Strayhorn. Ha suonato con Michael Franks, James Williams, Herbie Hancock, Teo Macero e con Ron Carter. In seguito ha diviso il lavoro tra l’Europa ed il Giappone, anche nel jazz fusion. Nel 1996 insieme a Andy LaVerne, John Patitucci e Steve Davis ha registrato una interpretazione molto radicale degli standards di Cole Porter. Ha registrato anche con Birelli lagrene, Christoph Spendel, Niels Lan Doky, Trilok Gurtu e Michael “Patches”Stewart. Sassofonista legato a Coltrane, molto elegante e raffinato.

EVANS DOC PAUL WESLEY. (ST)

Spring Walley, Minnesota. 20/7/1907. – Minneapolis, Minnesota. 10/1/1977.

Ancora studente la sua attenzione è stata attratta da vari strumenti: il sassofono, il violino, il pianoforte e la batteria. Nel 1929 ha suona anche la cornetta nella banda del Carleton College. In seguito ha deciso chequesto sarà il suo strumento e si impegna nello studio di questo strumento, prendendo a modello Bix Beiderbecke. Agli inizi degli anni ’30 la sua attività è stata limitata a gruppi locali di Minneapolis dove si era stabilito e dove ha svolto anche l’attività di maestro di scuola ed allevatore di cani. Solo nel 1939 ha deciso di dedicarsi solo alla musica associandosi con Red Dougherty. Si è quindi trasferito a New York dove ha diretto una ottima jazz band con la quale si è esibito in diversi locali della 52 a strada e ha registrato diversi dischi. Nel 1947 ha suonato a Minneaposis insieme a Bunk Johnson, quindi alla fine degli anni ’40 si è trasferito a Chicago dove si è esibito al “Blue Note”, al “Jazz Limited”, al “Bar Of Music”. Nel 1949 ha suonato con Miff Mole ed altri ottimi musicisti. Negli anni ’50 è tornato a Minneapolis dove ha organizzato un altro gruppo che ha ottenuto molto successo nei migliori locali della città e ha registrato anche molti dischi per la Soma e la Audiophile. Negli anni ’60 ha aperto un suo club a Mendota nel Minnesota il “Rampart Street Club”, dove si è esibito con suoi gruppi, senza però rinunciare a varie tournée negli States, ha anche partecipato a diversi famosi festival. Negli anni ’70 sempre molto attivo a Minneapolis ed a Syracuse.

EVANS FRANK (G)

Bristol, Inghilterra. 1/10/1936.

Ha iniziato a studiare la chitarra ed a interessarsi di jazz a undici anni. Comincia a suonare in piccoli gruppi e partecipa a molte tournée in Europa, spesso insieme a Tubby Hayes. Dal 1965 resta a lavorare nella sua città, muovendosi raramente e dividendo la sua passione per la chitarra jazz con la musica di consumo. Ha scritto musica ed arrangiato per la TV, mentre si è esibito nei club della sua città. Musicista con un profondo amore per la chitarra, che ha esplorato in ogni maniera, da quella classica, a quella orientale, con particolare attenzione per il jazz. chiusura
