5 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This outstanding 1966 documentary focuses on the life and music of the unrivaled jazz piano genius Bill Evans. Celebrated for his deft touch, rich harmonic textures, and subtle mellifluous style, Evans rose to fame as a member of Miles Davis's legendary quintet featuring John Coltrane, Julius "Cannonball" Adderly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. Evan's work on the jazz masterpiece kind of blue coupled with his prolific output as a bandleader, have earned him a place among the elite musicians of the jazz pantheon. Directed by Louis Carvell and produced by Helen Keane, Evans is filmed conversing with his brother Harry Evans on the nature of music, jazz and improvisation. The pianist is extremely articulate and enthusiastic in his discourse, and his ideas about a universal musical mind, are fascinating in their similarity to Jung's concept of the collective unconscious."--Conteneur
