From one of the most comprehensive docs on women jazz instrumentalists in USA, Kay Ray’s Lady Be Good to the intimate, dynamic, portrait of the Flaming Lips, The Fearless Freaks, the stunning desert blues guitar playing of Mdou Moctar in Rain the Colour of Blue with a Little Red in It, and lastly don’t miss the eight years-in-the-making portrait of the legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans in Bill Evans: Time Remembered.

This film explores the rich history of jazz pianist Bill Evans’ turbulent life and his contribution to jazz music. A deeply creative musician Evans was playing professionally by the age of 13 and later in New York worked as a sideman with Charles Mingus and Art Farmer. Featuring rare archival footage including his first TV recording, playing Come Rain or Come Shine, which appeared on CBS Look Up and Live in April 1958, this compelling story includes interviews with 40 people including Tony Bennett, Dr. Billy Taylor, singer Jon Hendricks, Jim Hall, Gene Lees, and jazz pianist Bill Charlap.

Reviews

Eight years in the making, Bruce Spiegel's touching documentary on the life and music of the late, great, and mysterious pianist is a must-see for jazz history buffs, as well as for anyone who enjoys cool, impressionistic piano.
