Bill Evans: "Bill Evans Plays Banjo"
CD - Bill Evans/Bill Evans Plays Banjo - Release date 2001
Exciting original bluegrass instrumentals from this internationally acclaimed California banjo player, featuring some of the genre's most acclaimed musicians.
Bill Evans has created an instrumental masterpiece and the only problem is that the title "Bill Evans Plays Banjo," is only half the story.
Plenty of pickers play banjo, and play it well, but very few can compose with the range, depth, beauty and creativity of Evans.
Evans manages to compose and play music that is readily embraced by traditionalists, but also appeals to progressive newgrass-types, a rare ability.
