‘BLACK ICE: INTO THE NIGHT’

Catherine L. Johnson 
2019

NOTE:
each work of the BLACK ICE series
oscillates / dances / shifts / reveals
constantly
in relation
to the specific light source – from ambient to direct
to the light’s positioning –  the actual angle 
and
to the movement of the viewer.

X

X

All of my work refuses/denies the camera’s eye.
The revelation, the experience,
occurs with an actual encounter – presence.
The beauty of one’s beloved is
the improvisational/sacred listening
of/ for/ to/ with
the beloved.

On March 19, 1965,
the Bill Evans Trio stopped by the BBC studios in London
to play a pair of sets on Jazz 625,
the now-legendary program hosted by the British trumpeter
Humphrey Lyttelton.

X

The combo featured:
Bill Evans on piano,
Chuck Israels on bass
and
Larry Bunker on drums.

X

The trio played two 35 minute sets,
including most of the songs from their just-completed album, Trio ’65.
Set One:
“Five,” by Bill Evans
“Elsa,” by Earl Zindars
“Summertime,” by George Gershwin
“Come Rain or Come Shine,” by Harold Arlen
“My Foolish Heart,” by Victor Young
“Re: Person I Knew,” by Bill Evans
“Israel,” by Johnny Carisi
“Five,” by Bill Evans (reprise)

X

Set Two:
“Five,” by Bill Evans
“How My Heart Sings,” by Earl Zindars
“Nardis,” by Miles Davis
“Who Can I Turn To?” by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse
“Someday My Prince Will Come,” by Frank Churchill
“How Deep is the Ocean?” by Irving Berlin
“Five,” by Bill Evans (reprise)

Thank you
Anthony Cox
for yet another
voyage/transport/oduh-see
of
evanescent, scintillating and profound
sonic river waters.
