Night owl chat – The incredible Bill Evans

In last night’s Night Owl Chat, I included a clip of the genius that was Bill Evans. As I am wont to do, I then went and viewed some more videos, and came across this one, comprised of two sessions he did for the BBC program “Jazz 625″ in the 1960s. I think that after the ugliness which has spewed forth these past two days, a bit of beauty is in order.

Stay frosty, night owls.
