For me, it has always been difficult to listen to Jazz because I always considered it as something that people that are highbrow 🧐 and full of themselves listed to, until recently when I noticed one of my favorite illustrators (Frannerd) listened to it and I was humble and open enough to finally give it a try and I loved it.
One of the musicians we discovered was Bill Evans 🙊 and oh man, he is good, his song "Peace Piece" made me CRY it's so moving.
So obviously I wanted to know more 👹 and I found this fantastic article called Romanticism Reincarnated: Bill Evans ‘Peace Piece’ which describes the inspiration behind this song. It mentions two key authors:
- Leonard Bernstein and his piece “On the Town” - Some other time!
- Chopin and his piece Berceuse in D-Flat Major, Op. 57: Berceuse in D-Flat Major, Op. 57
