"A must have!" says Jazz Journal!

"So few have done such an in depth analysis of Bill's harmonic development, from his own compositions. All pianists will be enlightened by this book! --- Jan Stevens (The Bill Evans Webpages)


JACK REILLY CDs:

"Pure Passion"



"Jack Reilly continues on his independent way as a pianist inspired by many predecessors but shaped by his own expansive harmonic vision. In several of his CDs, I have heard no more ravishing expression of that vision than in his radical, utterly gorgeous, reharmonization of the famous Dizzy Gillespie coda to Thelonious Monk's "'Round Midnight." His "Das Fryderyk" reinforces my conviction that if Chopin had been born fifty years later, he would been a great blues player. This solo album contains pieces by composers including Kern, Rodgers, Victor Young, Vernon Duke and Gershwin. Its cover proclaims, "10 Standards, 6 Originals." In Reilly's hands, they are all original."

--DOUG RAMSEY ( jazz critic, artsjournal.com)

Positively virtuosic... Reilly's playing... stretches the mind without destroying the ears...

--- DAVE NATHAN (AMG GUIDE)


"""Lives up to it's title...Jack plays in this solo album from the 'inside' of the music, from a depth few pianists can achieve..."

--JAN STEVENS, PIANIST ( Bill Evans Webpages)



"Aspiring pianists will find this CD a learning and listening journey that is invaluable in it's content, and the established players will simply sit back and take notice of it's brilliance."

-- JOHN GILBERT (Jazzreview.com)
