Bill Evans is a master of using upper extensions of chords to create beautiful and colorful harmony.

On his trio record, “Explorations” (1961) he begins comping for Scott LaFaro’s bass solo with crystalline structures of stacked thirds and makes some unique sonorities, all while maintaining a sense of melody in his accompaniment.
