This screening of the documentary, "Time Remembered", about the late/great jazz pianist Bill Evans, is hosted by pianist and NJCU Alumnus Joel Zelnik '69 and his trio. They will perform a pre-screening concert featuring music of Bill Evans.

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.
