To imitate someone is to insult them.
More quotes by Bill Evans
Despite the fact I’m a professional performer, it’s true that I have always preferred playing without an audience.
I say this because it’s a good message to give to young talents who feel as I used to. You hear musicians playing with great fluidity and complete conception early on, and you don’t have that ability. I didn’t. I had to know what I was doing. And ultimately it turned out that these people weren’t able to carry their thing very far. I found myself being more attracted to artists who have developed through the years and become better and deeper musicians.I believe in things that are developed through hard work.

For years the Trio did nothing but play for musicians and other hip people. We practically starved to death.
The fact that an artist is experiencing the joy of creation makes me feel like we’re in it together.
