- Bill Evans: Time Remembered review by BM
As a fan of Bill Evans, I'm not sure it'd have been possible for me not to enjoy this. Spiegel's documentary is a well presented, well told recount of Bill Evans' life and musical career. It benefits from a range of insightful interviews from people who knew him - and the live footage and archive interviews with Bill that are woven in to narrative are excellent and most welcome. If you're a fan of Bill or jazz music in general, this is simply great.
