Insights into the life of multi Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist Bill Evans

Bruce Spiegel has produced a complete documentary giving you insights into multi Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and composer Bill Evans; not just the musician, but also the person. The film moves chronologically starting with Bill's childhood in New Jersey and culminating with details about his death.

"The film Bill Evans: Time Remembered took me eight years to make. Eight years of tracking down anybody who knew Bill and who played with him, to try and find out as much as I could about the illusive and not easy to understand Bill Evans. I feel honored to have had the chance to interview and get to know good guys that spent a lot of time with Bill: Billy Taylor, Gene Lees, Tony Bennett, Jack DeJohnette, Jon Hendricks, Jim Hall, Bobby Brookmeyer, Chuck Israels, Paul Motian, Gary Peacock, Joe LaBarbera. It was a once-in-a lifetime experience talking to these gifted talented guys about their time in jazz music, about their 'Time Remembered' with Bill Evans." - Bruce Spiegel
