Sunday 16th July 2023

Bishop’s Court Farm, 91 High Street, Dorchester-on-Thames, OX10 7HP
‘A brilliant young pianist.’ The Guardian
The ninth show in an exciting series of contemporary jazz evenings at Bishop’s Court Farm
Nobody sounds quite like Paul Edis or transports you to the places he travels to with his meditative music. Having received unanimous critical acclaim for his last studio album, The Still Point Of The Turning World, Edis has immersed himself in the exquisite work of Bill Evans – widely considered to be the most important and influential pianist in the history of jazz.
This very special show will feature the sublime voice of acclaimed San Franciscan singer, Noa Levy, who will be performing Bill Evans’ original music alongside one or two standards he recorded regularly.
Many people will know Evans from his work with Miles Davis on Kind Of Blue. Davis said he had “quiet fire,” which perfectly encapsulates his mesmerising and understated playing style. Like Evans, Paul Edis plays without a trace of bombast or affectation. Simultaneously soothing and stirring, rapturous yet relaxed, at times the melodies almost appear to become subservient to the dreamlike mood of the music.
