Those Crystal Notes

In his Autobiography, Prince of Darkness complimented on his pianist: “Bill [Evans] had this quiet fire that I loved on piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall.” After listening to “All Blues,” I was like, “Miles was not bullshitting.” No wonder he always had the best players gave in to him. By the way, I can’t get enough of that crisp drums from Jimmy Cobb. Too damn sensual.
