American jazz saxophonist and two-time Grammy nominee Bill Evans plays at the legendary Parisian nightclub New Morning with Wolfgang Haffner (drums), Gary Grainger (bass) and Simon Oslender (keys), collectively known as The Spykillers. Naturally, a Bill Evans concert would not be complete without the song ‘Jean Pierre’, a French nursery song Evans recorded during his tenure with Miles Davis’s band in the 1980s. Evans shares his recollections of how Miles Davis came to play this song. Enjoy this 2019 recording of Bill Evans & The Spykillers at New Morning in Paris!
