I got reassigned to St Hugh’s College (my 2nd college at interview, rather than my 1st choice, Hertford), but I really like what I’ve seen of it. More importantly, if I get the grades I am going to one of the best universities in the world to study Maths, the subject I love most!
That gif describes my feels nicely atm! Although I also have a massive amount of shock and disbelief too. Chemistry at Corpus Christi, by the way.
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" Cannonball Adderley
