Jazz piano virtuoso Bill Evans was born on this day in 1929. Mary and I went to see him at Rick’s Cafe Americain in Chicago on our first anniversary with a few friends, and at one point he played "Theme From MASH (Suicide Is Painless)," and I barely recognized it, which surprised my friends. (They were fans of the show, I wasn’t.) That was in January 1979; he died in September 1980. This was released in 1981 on his posthumous album You Must Believe In Spring.
