Bill Evans (1929-1980) was one of the most important and influential pianists and composers in the history of jazz. From the early 1950s, when he first found work as a sideman, through the dozens of albums he released as a leader, his impact has been incalculable-Evans fundamentally altered the sound of piano trio jazz forever.

The Addams Family, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story that is every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family—a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before—keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
