Iain Ballamy & Gareth Williams | Celebrating the Genius of Bill Evans
£25
Sunday 19th November 2017. Doors 7pm.

A evening of music inspired by Bill Evans by two legends of the British jazz scene. Gallery favourite, Iain Ballamy returns to the Goldmark Front Room with one of the greatest living jazz pianists. Book your tickets early as there are only 60 seats available and we are bound to sell out.

Ballamy and Williams are perfectly matched and supremely balanced in this set celebrating the harmonic genius of Bill Evans.

A pioneer of post bop and modal jazz, Evans rose to prominence after playing on the legendary and iconic Miles Davis album ‘Kind of blue’ before becoming a key figure as a composer and leader of his trio with Scott La Faro.

The music is sophisticated and deep with almost orchestral harmonic qualities and a uniquely reflective character. Gareth Williams is recognised for his profound understanding of Evans’ music and his ability to portray it with the emotional gravitas it demands.
