Críticas:

"Pettinger understands what sets the pianist apart, and explains with a minimum of technical language and just enough musical transcriptions to get his key points across. . . This is an ideal companion for those who want to 'understand' Evans in the most important way, through listening."--Bob Blumenthal, Boston Globe"Peter Pettinger writes frankly in his fine new biography of what was no secret to Evans's appalled colleagues: The most influential jazz pianist of the past half-century was addicted to drugs--first heroin, then cocaine--for much of his adult life."--Terry Teachout, New York Times Book Review"[A] fine new biography . . . packed with . . . shrewd critical commentary."--Terry Teachout, New York Times Book Review"Peter Pettinger sets out to catalog and explain Evans' wide-ranging genius. . . . The making of every important Evans recording is discussed, and as he follows the extreme ups and downs of a career vexed by heroin addiction and other problems, Pettinger shows how the personal helped shape the artistic sensibility of this jazz innovator."--Tom Moon, Philadelphia Inquirer"Pettinger . . . has thoroughly researched Evans's life, reading the available literature and tracking down the pianist's associates for commentary, and he has listened assiduously to the Evans catalog, which is no small feat given its enormousness."--Adam Bresnick, Wall Street Journal"Pettinger provides a portrait of Evans that will serve as a foundation for further investigation of this quiet jazz giant. Recommended for jazz fans and music buffs."--Library Journal"Pettinger is eminently qualified to assay Evan's evolution as a pianist, and students of Evan's music will no doubt enjoy the author's references to Evan's scores and academic excursions."--Publishers Weekly"One of the most moving and informative jazz books of recent years. . . . For its sensitive sympathetic and insightful look at the artistry of Bill Evans, How My Heart Sings makes a valuable contribution."--Joel Roberts, All About Jazz"This is the first biography of one of the most influential jazz artists ever to tickle the ivories. . . . [It] includes a full discography, dozens of photographs, and analyses of Evans' expressive technique and compositional methods."--Paul Wilson, Bloomsbury Review"The greatest strength of Pettinger's writing is that, analyzing Evans' recorded legacy, almost piece by piece, he tells how Evans did it--that is, what to listen for--in terms fully accessible to the lay listener. So this is not an expose or analysis of a 'tortured' artist, but a fine music lover's reference about a nonpareil artist."--Booklist"Reading How My Heart Sings, with Evans's eloquent, challenging music playing in the background, is a wonderful experience, there for the taking."--Larry Nai, Cadence"Pettinger's approach is at once delightfully insightful and detailed in terms of musical analysis. . . . A much-needed addition to the growing list of respectable biographies of the greatest figures in the first century of jazz history. . . . An excellent choice for collections supporting studies of popular music at all levels."--Choice"Peter Pettinger's ambitious new volume is a concentrated work that aspires to fill a gap in jazz biography that has been left open too long. . . . A comprehensive endeavor and . . . a satisfying contribution. . . . Well-researched."--Michael Borshuk, Coda"Indispensable. . . . The 40-page discography alone will be cherished as will the author's dogged research into the circumstances surrounding all important Evans recordings and trio personnel changes. . . . Through interviews with friends and colleagues, Evans own utterances and the author's insider knowledge of the piano, the book contains many insights into Evans' music."--Jeff Bradley. Denver Post"[This book] is simply beautifully written and will probably become a model for future authors seeking to complete a classic biography."--Lee Bash, Jazz Educators Journal"Peter Pettinger's book on pianist Bill Evans is one of the best jazz biographies I have ever read. It is beautifully and lovingly written, meticulously researched, and filled with deep insight into Evans's personality and musicmaking."--Barry Kernfeld, author of What to Listen for in Jazz"This book is likely to become a classic. There is nothing quite like it in the history of jazz. A concert pianist looks at the work of a jazz pianist whom many authorities consider one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. Pettinger hears all sorts of subtleties as only a fellow pianist can. He is also a felicitous and interesting writer. This is a brilliant piece of extended analysis."--Gene Lees

Reseña del editor:

This enthralling book is the first biography in English of Bill Evans, one of the most influential of all jazz pianists.

The book also includes a full discography and dozens of photographs.
