John Horler - A Tribute to Bill Evans

 

Piano - John Horler.

Bass - Ron Phelan.

Drums - Ronnie Jones.

 

Critically acclaimed British pianist John Horler returns to The Flavel to celebrate the music of Bill Evans.

Accompanist for Dame Cleo Laine for 20 years and a former member of Sir John Dankworth’s bands, John has performed with a 'who’s who’ of modern jazz… household names like Art Farmer, Chet Baker, Zoot Sims, Maynard Ferguson, Tony Coe, Ronnie Ross, Pete King, Kenny Wheeler and Tommy Whittle.

 

But it’s the music - and musicianship - of Bill Evans which has left an indelible impression on John and his career; even inspiring him to become a jazz musician: “Embracing the music of European composers Debussy, Ravel and even Brahms, which he welded into his own very special jazz language”; says John…“Even today, Bill Evans is still the most influential figure in my playing… in an inspirational way…”

 

'A tribute to Bill Evans’ pays homage to the man, the music and the magic of the groundbreaking Bill Evans trio, almost exactly 60 years on from the day Evans and his band took to the stage at the Village Vanguard to record their seminal Riverside album; a session which captured the essence of the pioneering group, recorded as it was just weeks before the tragic death of bassist Scott LaFaro.

 

Supported by a well-regarded West Country rhythm section - last seen at The Flavel as a trio, accompanying John back in 2019 - this is a priceless opportunity to see one of Britain's most acclaimed and cherished jazz pianists playing the music he loves.
