It's been a riveting read for the last few days.
Somehow even with all the negative aspects of his life
this does not diminish my love and respect for the man and his art.
Really it only reinforces it.

Thanks to you Laurie and Mark.

Marc, RE: Harness Racing
When I was a kid, age 11-13 my brother and I would join my organist/pianist mother in a restaurant called Pearce's Dining Room at the Ben White Raceway, a well-known winter spot for the sport in Orlando, FL in the 50's through the early 70's. Mom would play for the lunch and then the dinner crowd every weekend. It's also called Sulkie Racing, named for the little cart the horses pull.

I am looking forward to adding more posts on behalf of the most artistic musician of all time.Thank you, Laurie,for your wonderful book and further insights into my "DaVinci of Jazz." As a native NYC saxophonist/ pianist, I have been under Bill Evans' wings for decades, and suspect - eternally will be, as well.
