Some new Bill Evans tune Requests

Not a regular poster on these forums and not sure if this is the right place so here goes…

I was listening to some Bill Evans this week. is it possible to have a tutorial on a couple of tracks I heard ideally in style of Bill Evans?

A House is not a Home - found a lead sheet online in F but id like to make it sound a bit richerJim Hall - I already play a version of this from a score but would be nice to see some reharmonizations?
And finally any chance of some more modern stuff - I was listening to Whirlpool by John Taylor recently. some wonderful tracks there.

One day I’ll get the time to listen and study properly!

many thanks

Sorry something got deleted talong the way- Told you I don’t post much!

Second request was I hear a Rhapsody with Jim Hall.

Hi John :wave:

Yes this is the perfect place to post these requests and yes we can certainly cover “A House Is Not A Home”, I found the below recording on YouTube which is beautiful:

What is the second Bill Evans recording that you would like us to cover? Please post a YouTube URL if possible and I will add it to our upcoming lesson schedule.

Thank you Hayden!
Yes that’s the version which I think is just wonderful. Gives me goosebumps!
The second request was for I Hear a Rhapsody. The version I’d listened to was with Jim Hall on the album Undercurrent. A slower version than some others. There’s also a trio version from his Live in Montreaux album which I havent listened to fully, only just discovered. Link below to Jim Hall version but my IT skills are definitely sub par so fingers crossed it works!

Many thanks
