Friday, April 4, 2014 at 8 p.m.
American jazz pianist and composer Bill Evans is considered one of the most influential pianists in modern jazz. Despite personal struggles and tragedy, Evans broke new ground with his trios, expanding the roles for the bass and drums, creating a sublime, unforgettable sound. The Quick Center for the Arts pays tribute to his remarkable legacy with a program featuring Nick Sanders (piano), Fairfield music professor and composer Brian Torff (bass), and Kurt Leon (drums).
