A special evening of live music and film paying tribute to the legendary jazz pianist and composer, Bill Evans. At 7:30pm, the Dick Fregulia Bill Evans Tribute Trio will perform an all Bill Evans repertoire on the Vickie Soulier Stage, followed by the brilliant documentary, Time Remembered: The Life and Music of Bill Evans by Bruce Spiegel.

“Eight years in the making, Bruce Spiegel’s touching documentary on the life and music of the late, great, and mysterious pianist is a must-see for jazz history buffs, as well as for anyone who enjoys cool, impressionistic piano—the style Bill Evans pioneered beginning in the early 1950’s and owned and expanded up to his death in 1980 at the age of 51. The categories are broad enough to include scores of listeners. Because isn’t it true that, once one hears him—whether leading his brilliant trio with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian on Sunday At The Village Vanguard, or anchoring the celestial Miles Davis Kind Of Blue sextet—everyone digs Bill Evans.” — Peter Jurew, All About Jazz

of

age 
with 
the

Taking the place of Moody, who passed away unexpectedly in January 2018, Jimmy Hobson is a master of many styles with a fine touch and keen ear that makes him an ideal replacement in the musical conversation.
 After twenty years of the frantic hustle working in Los Angeles and New York studios and with touring acts, Hobson returned back to the Bay Area and created Marinwest Recording in San Anselmo.
