He included stylised birdsong in some of his compositions integrating it into his music by techniques like the modes of limited transposition and chord colouration.
Messiaen even notated the bird species with the music in his score. Listen to Thibaudet's interpretation: Peace Piece by Jean-Yves Thibaudet: Evans wrote out the the chords for "Flamenco Sketches" on the modal masterpiece album and best-selling jazz record of all time Kind of Blue with Miles Davis.
The sober signature ostinato with that insistently repeated musical two-chord bass pattern is identical in harmony, tempo and initially in key to his openings to "Peace Piece" and "Some Other Time".
Although Miles Davis asked Bill Evans to record "Peace Piece" for the Kind of Blue session, Evans instead proposed not to tape individual pieces but to try something else: Only one occasion in he performed "Peace Piece" with the Bill Evans Dance Company in Seattle that was founded in by his namesake choreographer and director Bill Evans, who selected music from the pianist Bill Evans and choreographed it for four performances called Double Billan abstract and lyrical modern dance for five to eight dancers.
Later they performed Mixin' It Upa fusion of modern, jazz and tap involving extensive improvisation, for six or more versatile dancers.
Personal note by the choreographer Bill Evans, who send next email: The work was about 45 minutes long and included several other Bill Evans compositions besides Peace Piece. I know that we danced to Waltz for Debby. We performed together again inalso at Meany Hall. Reviews for both shows were overwhelmingly positive. We sold out the theatre for all performances.
Working with Bill was one of the highlights of my performing career. He was editor of the French periodical Jazzmagazine. He wrote like several authors poems on the music of Bill Evans.
