Music this morning

Bill Evans — Waltz for Debby.
A great piece, by Bill Evans at his finest (Village Vanguard, 1961). One of the most difficult jazz standards (for me) to play. This is probably due to several factors: 1. Bill Evans is a incredible pianist. 2. The head is 80 bars long — ABA’A”C
with repeat, and there are 3 forms of C. 3. The chords somehow (especially in the second halfs of A’, A” don’t seem to be “under the fingers”. 4. Its a really fast 3/4 — count in ones.
