Bill's Waltz.jpgGene Perla, Bill”s Waltz (PM). Drummer Elvin Jones should get equal billing with Perla. The two laid down basic bass-and-drums tracks in 1986. Following Jones' death in 2004, Perla wrote orchetrations for the pieces. With Jones digitally present, he recorded them in 2007 with the NDR Big Band in Germany.
