A documentary as hauntingly beautiful as the composer's music
26 March 2017 | by useltoninmaSee all my reviews

As a recent jazz fan who wanted to learn more about Bill Evans, I purchased this on Reelhouse and it was worth every penny I paid. This document does a fabulous job of capturing the haunting beauty of Bill Evan's music by exploring the live of the man who created it. It contains extensive interviews with those who knew him, who had the pleasure - or sometimes painful experience - of working with him or being close to him. Family members, former members of the various incarnations of The Bill Evans Trio, fellow musicians and friends/significant others provide candid interviews that paint a portrait of a man who was both gifted with great talent, and cursed by his own set of demons. If you're a big Bill Evans fan, general jazz fan, or a music lover who's wanting to learn more about one of the great American composers of the 20th century, this documentary is a must-see. Highly recommended!
