Bill Evans - Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Christmas has nearly arrived, so here is an exceptional 1960s recording of Haven Gillespie’s 1934 Christmas classic. Evans takes a simple tune, one that everybody knows, and makes it into art. His ability to play the richest possible chord voicings on any tune he recorded was unparalleled.
"Bill Evans has rare originality and taste and the even rarer ability to make his conception of a number seem the definitive way to play it"
