Brent Jarvis Trio plays the music of Bill Evans - Oct. 8, 2023
Bill Evans was known for his lyrical and introspective approach to the piano as well as his rhythmic and harmonic complexity. After recording on Miles Davis’ 1959 album: Kind of Blue, Bill Evans went on to lead his own iconic trios, release groundbreaking solo piano albums, and collaborate with Stan Getz, Tony Bennett, Art Farmer, Nat Adderley, Oliver Nelson, and others.

In the 1986 documentary: Piano Legends, Chick Corea, in introducing Bill Evans, states that:
“the player with the skills and sensitivity to master its incredible expressiveness can personalize a piano to such an extent that it seems that it was built for him and him alone.”


Brent Jarvis lives in Victoria BC and teaches (and is Chair of Music) at Vancouver Island University. In 2002 Brent completed a Jazz Performance degree at the University of Toronto and in 2022 a Master’s Degree in Musicology at the University of Victoria.

Brent aims to continue a lineage of lyrical piano playing that explores the harmonic and rhythmic potential of jazz performance and composition. By having closely studied the music of Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Phineas Newborn, Mulgrew Miller, Chick Corea, John Taylor, and others; Brent builds on a legacy of musical expression and exploration.
