The Music and Legacy of Bill Evans
Featuring 2019 Bittle Jazz Artist-in-Residence, pianist David Thompson
UA’s 17th annual JazzFest 2019 will take place Tuesday-Friday, March 19-22, with guest pianist David Thompson, the 2019 Bittle Jazz Artist-in-Residence, graciously supported by Frances Yates Bittle.
A resident of Medina, Ohio, pianist David Thompson was introduced to jazz pianist Bill Evans as a teen and calls it the “defining moment in my life in terms of experiencing such beauty revealed and expressed in such a powerful way. That was the day I began to play the piano again.”
Thompson is the 2019 Bittle Jazz Artist-in-Residence, made possible by UA’s Bittle Jazz Residency, generously supported by Frances Yates Bittle.
