ę In September 2010, I was contacted by Sťbastien Vidal, the scheduler of the Duc des Lombards, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bill Evansí death and organize a series of concerts.
I therefore invited my longstanding friend Gianluca Renzi and drummer Eliot Zigmund, member of Bill Evans Trio.
I myself had always made a point of avoiding playing Billís music during all my life, and it was quite a strange experience for me to suddenly start playing the music of the pianist I had been listening to the most in the last thirty years, and be immersed in such familiar sound: Eliotís cymbals, from the album You must believe in Spring, my bedside CdÖ
The trio we formed finally and very naturally found its own sound, which motivated us to leave a trace of this encounter. So as to make it a real homage and something very special, Tribute to Bill is deliberately a unique edition which is limited to 250 copies, signed and numbered, each part of a set containing a CD and a long play record.
