Paul Edis Trio (The Music of Bill Evans) - Leyburn Jazz Festival
21st October 2023, 4pm
In the second of his three concerts Paul Edis explores the music of Bill Evans, one of the most important pioneers in developing the piano trio format in jazz. A significant influence on Edis as a composer and performer, Bill Evans’ original music is full of intense emotion and beauty: Paul Edis himself is also a natural melodist who finds the emotional resonance of every note. Rooted in the straight-ahead swinging tradition, he is recognised as ‘One of the leading lights in contemporary jazz’. Edis will perform many of Evans’ most significant compositions alongside a biographical narrative about Evans and the background to his sublime music. 'A major voice in British Jazz.’ Jazz Journal
