Peace Piece

You can get lost in jazz. Some, not all. Some jazz can simply get lost, unless you persevere. But the basic format of the jazz trio - bass, drums and piano - seems to me to provide the perfect place to get lost.

At the end of a day when I've tried to wind down and slow from frantic to doing nothing I discover an old track by the Bill Evans trio. Just a simple riff to bounce off, sometimes almost discordantly but always pulling it back.

Five minutes of giftedness. Watch and listen to someone else playing a short and simplified solo version of it here.
