Many of Evans’ compositions, such as “Waltz for Debby,” have become standards, played and recorded by hundreds of artists. Evans received 31 Grammy nominations and seven awards and was inducted into the DownBeat Jazz Hall of Fame in 1981. Remastered by Bernie Grundman, who said about pianist: “Bill Evans is definitely a major figure in jazz. What can you say? He’s just one of those geniuses.”
