Bill Evans – Danny Boy

Bill Evans used to say he never saw himself as a solo pianist and that early on in his career he wasn’t even that comfortable playing solo. However, his solo albums and renditions are generally considered to be some of the best solo jazz piano efforts.

Taken from the album Empathy – and a couple of other compilations – this version of Danny Boy is a sensitive long take on this great theme. It starts so gently this, truly beautiful. Within about 10 seconds Bill has you hooked.
