Album Notes
"An amazing ability to cover boisterous blues and quiet ballads..." She is "well suited to the sensitivity of the Evans material." -Bill Kohlhaase (L.A. Times)

"Gallinger possesses a deep, rich voice that is nothing short of astonishing" -Steve Eddy (O. C. Register)

".... a remarkable endeavor." -Nenette Evans

Remembering Bill Evans is Karen Gallinger's third release on Sea Breeze Jazz. It is remarkable not only for the abilities of this gifted vocalist, but for the material itself. All of the songs, except "I Remember Bill" a beautiful tribute written by Don Sebesky, are Bill Evans' originals .

Thanks to the cooperation of the Bill Evans Estate, Ms. Gallinger assembled some very special material for this project, including previously unrecorded and unknown material. This is extremely challenging material, handled with sensitivity and intelligence by a singer with a voice hailed by critics as "astonishing" and "extraordinary".

Some Highlights: This is the debut recording of "Catch The Wind", a song Evans wrote but never recorded. The lyrics, written by Ms. Gallinger, are based on the history of the title as told to her by his widow, Nenette. Karen has also written lyrics for We Will Meet Again, Time Remembered (Dawn Preludes) and Funkallero.

The year 2000 marks the 20th anniversary of Bill's passing. "Remembering Bill Evans" is a beautiful and moving tribute by a truly gifted singer.

A word about the Liner Notes on the first pressing: At the time of release it was believed that the handwritten lyrics found to Remembering The Rain were penned by Evans, himself. Since the cd's release we discovered that the lyric was actually written by Eleana Tee. The author has since published the lyric with TRO under her own name, and we will be correcting the information on future pressing.
