Time Remembered - The 50th Celebration June 25, 1961 The Bill Evans Trio

                                                        June 25, 2011 - Brasilia, Brasil

By Leonardo Barroso
Four friends together (Claudio, Mateus, Lucius and Me) to celebrate music, to enjoy a masterpiece made 
50 years ago. The Bill Evans Trio with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian were together at the Village Vanguard on a Sunday, June 25, 1961.
It is consider to be one of the most influential jazz recording ever made, and the one that defines how a jazz-piano trio must sound. But for myself, is one the greatest music played, how can you not be moved by the great tune "My Foolish Heart"? It was a new way to hear this piece.

Tonight we heard a Bill Evans repertory, and started as listed below:

- Luigi Tessarollo & Stefano Bollani

- Eliane Elias, Joey Baron, Marc Johnson

- The Danish Radio Jazz Orchestra and Jim McNeely

- Kronos Quatet and Eddie Gomez

- Stefano Battaglia Trio

- Luca Lapenna

- The Drummonds

- JVC Portrait of Bill Evans: Eliane Elias, Brad Mehldau, Bob James, Dave Grusin, Herbie Hancock
