Bill Evans was the leader of one of most influential trios in jazz history, invaluable contributor to the modal explorations on Miles Davis Kind of Blue. Miles said it best: Bill had this quiet fire that I loved on piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall. Brilliant orchestral arrangments by Claus Ogerman.

"Legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans is most often thought of as a "trio" player, as most of his albums have been piano/bass/drums, with the occasional solo or duo album. But he did record a select few albums with orchestras, and that's what makes SYMBIOSIS a special and unique entry in Evans' huge catalog. Recorded in 1974, this album contains no standards or Evans originals--the title piece is a multi-part suite composed, arranged and conducted by Claus Ogerman (who also collaborated with Stan Getz and Frank Sinatra, among many others).

 

The album runs the stylistic gamut: there are moments of Philip Glass-like minimalism (!), samba-flavored big-band passages, echoes of the early 20th century Russian composers, Third Stream jazz, lush yet slightly ominous string arrangements and '70s film music. Throughout, Evans, alternating between acoustic and electric pianos, shimmers and entrances with his inventively lyrical solos. Not your "typical" Bill Evans album - but that's what makes SYMBIOSIS such a fine, gently challenging listen." - All Music

 

“Symbiosis” - Ogerman’s potent melding of contemporary classical and jazz with NY Philharmonic players, top jazz musicians, and the Bill Evans Trio. Classic Evans in an unusual setting. Bill Evans was the leader of one of most influential trios in jazz history, and invaluable contributor to the model explorations on Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue”. Miles said it best: “Bill had this quiet fire that I loved on piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall". Claus Ogerman is one of the most prolific 20th century arranger-composers, at home in every style (rock, pop, jazz, classical).
