The following concert in Berlin in 1965 may well be the greatest piano jazz summit ever documented on film. It featured Earl Hines
, Teddy Wilson
, John Lewis
, Lennie Tristano
, Bill Evans
and Jaki Byard
. I have no idea why the sound goes dead when Evans comes out, but I snooped around and found the segment elsewhere and posted it below. Just stop the first clip and start the second one, resuming the other when it's over (moving past the dead Evans clip, of course). What a concert!
the Bill Evans segment...
