Format: Audio CD
This is your chance to own 2 classic jazz albums from a legend of the keyboard Bill Evans. CD1 New Jazz Conceptions recorded in 1956 is a mixture of standards and Evans compositions. My favourite track is "Speak Low" as he explores all the corners and in his 5 minute plus exploration the music just flows.
CD2 is Everybody Digs Bill Evans and comes from 1958 and again is a mix of standards and Evans own work. The standout track on this album is "Night and Day" with its rhythmic drum opening and over 7 minute trio workout.
These are transfers from record to CD and have been digitally remastered. Sleeve notes are by Peter Gamble and the re-issue was produced by Glenn Gretlund for Not Now Music.
Look out also for Oscar Peterson, Songbooks on NOT2CD286 another gem.

I had the OJC remaster of Everybody Digs Bill Evans and I picked up this up cheap for the other CD in the set. Surprise surprise the sound on this cheapie is better than the OJC one. Whoever remastered it (not stated on the sleeve) did a nice job (the Product Description suggests it's Orrin Keepnews but I doubt that is correct), there's so much more ambience and realism! Everybody Digs is a beautiful album and a must for all Bill Evans fans, while the earlier Jazz Conceptions is also excellent. A bargain!

I'm afraid I have to concur with the previous reviewer, the sound quality of this budget release is poor. To my ear, it sounds as if it has been remastered from an LP and cleaned up. The peak levels are fuzzy (for example when Bill hits two handed chords) and the treble boost to bring out the cymbals is quite pronounced with the effect of foregrounding the tape noise.
Having said that, the music is fantastic, particularly the eponymous second disc. Philly Joe Jones really lifts the group performance and makes things swing, like no other Evans performance I've heard. For the budget price I'm prepared to overlook the sound problems, but I would prefer Original Jazz Classics to bring the Everybody Digs Bill Evans [Keepnews Collection] remaster back into print: it would be worth paying extra for this classic jazz record.

If I could award more than 5 stars for this I would. Not only one great album but two under the same cover. Bill Evans was a genius and it shows on these fantastic recordings. Although recorded in 1956 and 1958 the sound reproduction is superb thanks to the digital remastering.
The musicianship of all in the two trio's on show is first class producing some great late night jazz. Bill's solo piano works are particularly brilliant and moving. His influence can be heard in the likes of Jacques Lousier and Michel Legrand who became his contemporaries. A must have album for jazz piano aficionados.

I was reintroduced to the music of Bill Evans a year or so ago and have been collecting a few of his cds since. "Everybody ...." ranks as some of his best work as leader of trios, his best format. And, which I hadn't realised, this comes as a double cd with the added bonus of the earlier "New Jazz Conceptions"

By J. Mcdonald TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 April 2013
Format: Audio CD
This double CD set offers a bargain package of Evans` first two trio albums recorded under his own name for Riverside studios.

The quality and value of the music on these discs is, I should think, beyond doubt. Though "New Jazz Conceptions" wasn't initially a critical success, it's the album that introduced one of Evans` best known pieces, "Waltz For Debby". It also revealed an accomplished young musician already developing a more personal harmonic approach to playing, although still working through the bebop pattern set by Bud Powell and possibly nodding towards another emerging pianist - Lennie Tristano. In hindsight it`s an interesting - if unrepresentative - Evans album with an emphasis on standard tunes of the time.
The seminal "Everybody Digs Bill Evans" is the album that put him on the map; it shows his experimentation with block chords influenced by George Shearing, but never - as far as I`m aware anyway - fully adopting the locked-hands approach. By the time this album was recorded Evans` playing was more cohesively his own, his ideas matured through having worked with people like Mingus and George Russell. This album contains a wonderfully inventive version of "Night and Day" and introduces "Peace Piece" which was to re-surface in a different form on Miles Davis` "Kind of Blue" album.

This is a great album for fans of cool jazz. I downloaded it in mp3 format and have found that my enhanced pc speakers really do it justice. Marvellous :)
