Barrie, Ontario’s Premier Big Band

 "You never master the instrument. You always just strive to get better."

-Bill Evans






William John Evans was an American jazz pianist and composer who mostly played in trios. His use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically independent, "singing" melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today.
