Jazz Piano Solos Volume 19 – Bill Evans

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 19 Bill Evans PDF. 24 essential Evans standards arranged for piano solo. A total of 96 pages and 24 selections (each selection ranging from 3 to 5 pages). Obviously, these are not transcriptions, but the arrangements are still complex (Arranged by Brent Edstrom).
This is a great collection of Bill Evans arrangements, beautifully written for the intermediate to better player. It has been rewarding to play some unfamiliar pieces and enjoy the pleasant surprises of beautifully sounding jazz works. If you play background music for social events or in public, this is a must book to access a few pieces for your repertoire.
They accurately match the harmonies and register-on-the-piano that Bill Evans used in playing these pieces. The sound is complete, with the use of enough bass and chords structured in 7ths and 10ths. You will find you left and right hand playing a lot of inner chords while holding the melody, something Bill Evans did a lot. The leads are NOT note-to-note transcriptions but carry substance, and emulate Bill Evans 100%. The “leads” per selection vary in dept, as some of the selections have more lead action than others.
Brent Edstrom has created very nice interpretations of Bill Evans pieces. The upper intermediate difficulty allows for quick learning although the arrangements sound very convincing. The written out solo sections are great for those of us who lack true jazz improv skills but love the sound.
