Practice Tape No.1 [Original recording remastered] (1965-1966)

20 Never before heard solo piano practice recordings made by Bill Evans himself in his New York apartment at an unknown date; features originals, standards & interpretations of Bach compositions. The first of a series of archival recordings, the restoration and release of which are being overseen by Evan Evans, son of the artist. Quietly released in late August, the 21-track CD comes from two tapes of Evans practicing his craft, unaccompanied in his apartment in the 1960s.

The disc includes few full works, but more riffs and shards of Evans originals along with passages of the work of other jazz composers, as well as several Bach pieces performed by the classically trained musician. Throughout the disc, Evans is faintly heard talking to an unidentified friend or associate, sometimes discussing his technique.

"My father practiced an average of eight hours a day in his later years," Evan Evans writes in the disc's liner notes. "That his music was so powerful can only be a testament to the importance of perseverance, dedication, and above all, as he and I agree, discipline."

track 7 features Leny Andrade, Cidinho and Marc Johnson. Cidinho is also on track 8, Chorinho Pra Ele. On track 14, E Nada Mais is played by Luiz Eça and Cidinho, 4 hands piano.

29Sep1979, Saturday, right after Bill's concert at Sala Cecilia Meirelles, where he played with Marc Jonhsos and Joe La Barbera.

Respect to the unidentified theme after "Letter to Evan" - Bill Evans played some days before in Rosario, Argentina; he played this tune and it's been impossible to pin - Maybe he was experimenting with a new composition.
