Bill Evans

Blue Note pianist Tim Amann brings his tribute to the music of the great American Jazz pianist Bill Evans (1929-1980) back to the Silvershine Jazz Club. They will be evoking the spirit of the great Bill Evans trios of 1966 to 1975 in their seminal recordings at the Village Vanguard in New York City.


The line up is

    • Tim Amann - Piano
    • Adam Gilchrist - Bass
    • Aidan Amann - Drums


As many of you already know, Tim’s son Aidan has grown into a very talented drummer, who can more than hold his own with the big boys.

This gig is tailor made for our new Baby Grand piano!
