Monika Lang Trio


Monika Lang Trio


Monika Lang, who has a classical piano training and education at her disposal, has remained faithful to the 'Evans Feeling' in many sorts of ways. Regarding the 'B Minor Waltz' she just talks about a “fascination how he manages to modulate in a completely different key within only one bar and with only one chord which one nearly does not even notice!”

Otherwise, Monika Lang was simply mesmerized by this sheer subtle unagitated ingenuity. And the former mentioned “beauty”, a term which she also uses in this context, also led her to Bill Evans emotionally, even without the knowledge about the reviews and obituaries.

Finally, a couple of similar emotions dominate several compositions that the Monika Lang Trio added to their 'Tribute to Bill Evans': 'Tom’s Tune' is Lang’s equivalent to 'Re: Person I Knew'. In both of them, we can feel the most important persons of the artists’ life, the personal surroundings which inspire and stabilize.
