i found this beautiful bill evans piece on limewire, and not only is half of it cut off, but there was no name. if anyone could identify this song for me, i'm really appreciate it.

i don't know, but the playing doesn't sound like bill evans; the approach, touch, and voicings don't sound like bill. it sounds like two pianos, too.
now that i listen to it, it does sound like two pianos. hm, now i'm even more curious.
hm, either rapid share is not very rapid after all or i have done something wrong.
yes rapid share is certainly quite the opposite..
hmmm despite my ridiculously large collection of bill evan's i have never heard this tune before.  i'm guessing its from "conversations with myself" the one album i don't have in which i here he overlays different tracks giving it the two pianos effect (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/conversations_with_myself).
it's not from "conversations with myself" -- neither from the piano jazz duet with marian mcpartland.

absolutely two pianos, for sure.

i have most, but not all of evans's albums, and i've never heard this tune before.  one i don't have is the "further conversations with myself" album -- i've been holding off until i finish transcribing the stuff from the first conversations album (which means i may never get around to hearing the "sequel," unfortunately).

if it's not bill evans, it's someone doing a pretty good imitation of his bag of tricks, at any rate.
the more i listen to it, the more i feel like a fool for actually thinking that's one piano and bill evans playing. you're right, it's clearly not him, and it's definitely two pianos. just goes to show you the power of the mind when it wants to believe something is true =d.

in any case, it's still a beautiful song and wonderful players, and i would love very much to be able to identify it as well as who is playing it, and download the entire song. the problem of not knowing what a song is, is that it's virtually impossible to actually reasearch it. i mean, it's not like you can search for musical notes on google. that's what makes it so darn frustrating. thanks again guys and i hope someone here will be able to identify it.
i  too have many of bills recordings and i would like to give this a shot  but i cannt access the site help. bill can be heard on 2 albums where he plays with another pianist one is marian mcpartland the other is bob brookmeyer
the tunes on brookmeyer and evans are-- as time goes by--- i got rhythm--the man i love--the way you look tonight--it could happen to you--and honey suckle rose.on bill and marian album he and she collaborate on all of you--wine and roses -- this is all i ask  and cole porters  i love  you  please post your results thanks charlie in your own sweet way -
that's not bill evans!
i can't get it to play.  oh well.
i'm almost certain it's marian mcpartland playing but it's not off the piano jazz cd bill did with her. he did appear in a duo with her back in the 1970s at the montery jazz festival and they performed one her tunes called "afterglow". so that could be the piece. problem is i haven't herad that piece for years so i can't be certain. but i'm pretty well convinced marian mcpartland is playing.

i know one thing for certain it is not off the 'conversations', 'further conversations' or 'new conversations' that bill recorded.
old topic i know, but i still want to know what song this is
same as then for me.... you would have to pur it somewhere other than rapid share or explain how that works, cause i can not hear any music when i click on your link

there we go, just enter in the code at the top and then download it
there are so many ways to share these files without signup or downloads required (even here for gosh sakes).  can't we find something simplier?
try https://www.yousendit.com
it's an e-mail server that can transfer large files. you upload your mp3 then send it to an email addy. to link it here you can send your mp3 to your email addy or another account. yousendit will send you a verification email with a link.  

it's free for the basic plan and it will keep your upload for 7 days. if you use the paid plans you can have larger files sent. easy to use.
that would be for proace -- i was trying to get to the file he posted but couldn't get through the goo gaw of the site.  as a computer guy i don't have much patience with things that scream free and easy and are neither (unlike ljp which is both)!  

proace, why not just post it here?
it's not allowing me to attack it here. when i go to attack file, and choose the mp3 nothing happens. it seems to only work for midis
rapidshare and megaupload are very simple to use. you just need to download the mp# file.  

btw, it's not a piece by bill evans.
