Bill Evans: To Understand Music, Listen Well

evans_bill_alone“Perhaps the hours of greatest pleasure in my life have come about as a result of the capacity of the piano to be in itself a complete expressive musical medium.

“In retrospect, I think that these countless hours of aloneness with music unified the directive energy of my life.

“At those times when I have achieved the sense of oneness while playing alone, the many technical or analytic aspects of the music happened of themselves with positive rightness which always served to remind me, that to understand music most profoundly, one only has to be listening well.”
