Bill Evans on the Creative Process

These three videos were extracted from the movie “the Universal Mind of Bill Evans – Creative Process and self-teaching”. It’s a great glimpse into the mind of one of the greatest Jazz piano players of all time. Evans discusses his thoughts on improvising over various song frameworks and the creative process in music.

These are portions of the whole movie. I have put them in an order that I think is best to illustrate his thoughts on the creative process and his approach to problems that confront all of us in any creative endeavor.
