Pianist Jack Reilly has never been content to simply place himself at a keyboard and let his imagination fly. Despite his considerable improvisational skills, his long career has been continually infused with thoughtful, probing journeys into the elemental aspects of the way jazz is created. A considerable number of those journeys have reached into the music of Bill Evans, a longtime Reilly friend and one whose harmonic vision has been a frequent source of inspiration.

Who is this guy, and why is he here? We know this much: His name is Jack Reilly. He was hired by the Chargers last year, but most of his salary was paid by the University of Utah. The Chargers had no openings on their coaching staff last season, but they made room for this guy. He has this CIA-like personnel file in the team's public relations department--it's empty.
