Weezerpedia's featured song is a monthly showcase of a song from one of the many bands we cover. Weezerpedia has thousands of song pages, and our editors work together each month to select one that sheds light on the bands/topics we cover, highlights or "platforms" a band we want to support, etc. We have similar pages for featured articles, featured videos, featured images, and featured quotes. Weezerpedia:Featured list is being put on hiatus for a spell.

Featured song: "Piece Peace"
"Peace Piece" is a jazz piece recorded by Bill Evans in December 1958 for his album Everybody Digs Bill Evans. The Karlophone song "Peanuts" (track four on 2002's Press Any Key to Begin) includes a sample from the song at 0:54.
Both Karl Koch and Brian Bell have acknowledged Evans as an influence.
The segment from "Piece Peace" occurs at 4:36 on the Everybody Digs Bill Evans album track version. This was Evans's second album, done two years after his first record as a leader. Though Orrin Keepnews - Evans' producer - had wanted him to record a follow-up album to his debut sooner, the self-critical Evans felt he had "nothing new to say" before this album.
The recording captures Evans at a time when he frequently played extended musical ideas using block chords, a technique also favored by Milt Buckner, Shearing George Shearing, Oscar Peterson, and other jazz pianists. That combined with his use of pedals gave him a sound considered by critics to be innovative. Though Evans had quit the Miles Davis band a month before the album was recorded, Davis was enamored of Evans's piano sound as it was developing through 1958, and decided to use him as the pianist for four of the five tracks on the 1959 recording Kind of Blue.
