Lead Sheets Bill Evans



Bill Evans era un maestro nell' arte di interpretare i standards e le sue versoni dei temi più sfruttati si imponevano spesso come versioni di riferimento. Quindi i musicisti di jazz e sopratutto i pianisti stavano studiando i suoi arrangiamenti, armonisazioni. Come tutti i grandi del jazz, perveniva spesso a trascendere qualsiasi tema, re-armonizandolo, migliorando il fraseggio, aggiungendo introduzioni, modulazioni, interludi.

Quindi, per ottenere un quadro completo del suo arte, mi e sembrato interessante di fare dei lead sheets "as played by Bill Evans" dei standards registrati da lui, e in primo luogo i suoi preferiti, i brani che facevano parte in modo permanente del suo repertorio.

Ho dedicato circa un anno a mettere insieme una specie di "Bill Evans" fake book" di standards: più di duecento lead sheets presentando le sue scelte di tonalità, i suoi accordi, eventualmente le introduzioni, coda ....

Per fare questi lead sheets, ho fatto riferimento unicamente alle registrazioni delle versioni che stimavo più riuscite e interessante, ascoltando e trascrivendole, senza utilizzare i lead sheets già pubblicati.
