jazz, through live performance and engaging discussion. Filmed as an informal
discussion between Bill Evans and his brother Harry Evans (professor of music at
Louisiana State University), this documentary features in-depth discussion of
Evans' internal process of song interpretation, improvisation, and repertoire.
