Been hemming and hawing for years whether or not to buy the Last Waltz set of Evans at Keystone Korner the week before he died. Then just yesterday I was eyeing a copy for a cool $50, but postponed the decision once again. Now here he is featured in your blog this morning. Well, it must be a sign... so my lively, lovely wife just bought me for Xmas Bill and the guys' last hurrah. (Such a thoughtful woman, even when not yet in the loop.) Grateful thanks to Sandra, Marc (and Marc), Joe and Bill.

Fantastic to see that Half Moon Bay location again. The woman who accompanied us to the gig was Linda Goldstein (who moved to New York shortly there after and went on to become Bobby McFerrins manager). Orrin was there and I think Terri Hinte as well.

Thanks Brian for providing one of your photo's for my book.

Ed...I think you're going to enjoy those recordings. When I listen to them, I'm always amazed at how Evans sounds so powerful and energetic, considering the dire state of his health at that time.

Bill Forbes

A sad time recalled! But, whatever his physical condition, Bill's playing was still superb when I saw him in London at Ronnie Scott's Club in August 1980.

Dino Baraldi

to hear Bill Evans it's more pleasure, your immense and delicate pianism fill each mind that hear him.
I love her music too.
