Bill Evans and Scott LaFaro worked together from 1959 until Scott’s death in a road accident in 1961. This brief collaboration was to become recognised as the absolute peak of Bill’s career – not bad when you take into account that he is considered by so many as the outstanding pianist of post-war jazz.
Bill and Scott were a major inspiration to bassist Dave Green and pianist Gareth Williams, who agreed to work on and interpret their heroes’ classic repertoire. Their ground rules were not to create a ‘tribute to’, nor a pastiche or copy; but instead to combine direct influences and a reworking of the original music’s style without compromising their own individual strengths and skills.
