Bill Evans Chords: A Tutorial on their Voicing

Here’s a quick look at how Bill Evans tended to voice his left hand jazz piano chords: usually rootless, with higher degrees. I’ll also share some of Evans’ “classic” voicings, like his voicings of minor 11 or dominant 13th chords. Overall, this video should give you general ideas on how voice these chords in context and into the style of Bill Evans as a whole. I hope you enjoy!
