More Evans

Evening: I was going to take the day off today, but got interested in working on some Bill Evans II-V’s in the evening. I purchased a biography of Bill Evans at the bookstore today and I enjoyed the little bit that I’ve started on. It’s nice to find the man and the music fascinating.
Anyways, I worked through some II-V ideas of his, and crafted some voice-leading in the style of Evans. I’m working on medium size voicings with the minor or major 2nd in the middle. Some are quite a hand stretch on guitar. It was a good exercise and I think my fingers were glad to get the workout. I’m getting quicker and more accurate with my playing. I think my tone/ sound is really developing to a different level. Fun stuff….
