152: “My Foolish Heart” and “Peace Piece” by Bill Evans

You talkin' to me?Here’s Bill Evans, the pianist who played with Miles on Kind of Blue, and co-wrote “Blue in Green.”  He did a lot early on in life.

Presented are two heartstring-tuggers: “My Foolish Heart” with backup as a trio and “Peace Piece” solo, from Everybody Digs Bill Evans.

Bill Evans influenced jazz as much as just about anyone, and he died at 51 from drug addiction.

There is a fuzzy gray line between genius and stupid frickin’ idiot.
