Bill Evans

JazzFresno and the Fresno County Public Libraries host (free and open to the public) Jazz at the Library on Tuesday, June 18th, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at the Woodward Park Regional County Library located at 944 E. Perrin Ave. (Champlain & Perrin).


Craig VonBerg, jazz educator and jazz keyboardist will give a presentation titled "Reinventing the Piano Trio: The Trios of Bill Evans." From the moment pianist Bill Evans emerged as a leader, his trio was the vehicle through which his innovations were most masterfully conveyed. Here we will examine how Evans, in collaboration with his fellow artists, re-imagined what a piano trio could be, in essence, redefining the roles of all three instruments. Craig VonBerg (keyboard) performs with his trio, with Brian Hamada (drums) and John Lauffenburger (bass).
