The perfect balance between musicality, lyricism and evocati

"Joe Bushkin's style meant in those times the seminal spark, the inspirational pivot for Bill Evans, years later.
Bushkin played with an accurate balance between expression and introspection, that made of the jazz the new way to capture these magic moments and, at the same time to evoke these peerless instants of voluptuous and sentimental mood since the middle forties.
In this sense just a few pianists felt and understood this approach - I could cite to Errol Garner (Misty), Roger Williams (in the easy to listen music) and Oscar Levant (despite he was a classic pianist, he made his contribution in "An American in Paris", playing with that characteristic mellowness) - that challenged the new sounds of that decade.
