During his life Bill Evans appeared several times on the covers of authoritative jazz periodicals around the world, always in combination with reviews on his music, awards or interviews with him. From the book The Complete Book Of Covers From The New Yorker, the issue dated Jan 4, 1958 is a painting of a jazz trio and the pianist was definitely Bill Evans. The first time he appeared on the cover of a jazz magazine happened in 1959 on Down Beat by way of Gene Lees , who joined the magazine that year as an editor after hearing Everybody Digs Bill Evans. Below some covers of issues from 1960 till 2011 like Down Beat, the French magazines Jazz Hot, Jazz Magazine and Le Jazzophone, the former British Jazz Journal and several issues of the Japanese Swing Journal.
