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."
