Of all the Bill Evans albums I have heard, this one is quite outstanding. Like 'conversations with myself' this is another studio experiment, this time (much more succesfully) mixing Fender Rhodes with Piano, plus (in some cases) overdubbed orchestra. There are even sleeve notes from Mr Rhodes! The two instruments blend perfectly together, both affording different kinds of dynamic which allow him to trickle and pour his delicate phrases back and forth as though giving air to a robust fine red wine. The airiness is needed too, because harmonically, he's as 'out there' as Thelonious Monk, but his melodic style makes it much more palatable. It's also fascinating to hear different versions of the same track, with and without orchestra. This CD works equally well in the background at a candlelit dinner, or with headphones in the dark, or anywhere in between. Sublime.

Lesser-Known Masterpiece 29 Nov 2001
By Robert Keil - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an absolutely wonderful album of terriffic compositions, masterfully played by Evans. His Rhodes electric piano work is delicate yet full of emotion and technical mastery. His acoustic piano is heard with equal weight, also and is great as always. This is a fulfilling album all the way through. "Soiree" is my favorite of the set, easily one of the most beautiful recordings I have ever heard. One slight annoyance is a fairly high level of tape hiss, which must be inherent in the original master recording. Too bad this music was out of print for so many years. I cannot recommend this album highly enough. In a word: Buy it.

An underrated masterpiece 30 Nov 1999
By Jeffrey Harris - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I heard this album for the first time last year, and has truly been a rewarding experience. On "From Left, To Right" Bill Evans moves effortlessly back and forth from the grand piano to the Rhodes electric piano. I love the two versions of "The Dolphin", one with the just the band and the second with string and percussion overdubs. It's almost a crime that this album stayed out of print for so long. It's prompted me to pick up other albums from him. This is supreme mood music, and is one you should hear for yourself.

A hidden ttreasure! 19 April 2005
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I just knew about this golden treasure album due a magnificent surprise gift of one beloved and estimated friend, last Saturday. In this work Evans once more exhibits with all his virtues some little and intimate musical gems. Michel Legrand' s What are you doing the rest of your life? is played with such introspective mood as I had never listened never before. Why did I choose you? expresses with meditative and serene calm, a decisive love's homage. Lullaby for Helene and Like someone on love make of this CD an appropriate pretext to listen over and over under the twilight, dawn, proving once more the artistic stature of this everlasting jazz legend.

It's Like Children at PLay 28 Aug 2000
By C. R. Reifsnyder - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was never able to enjoy Jazz, I was very closed minded with music styles and I was not willing to change. Nearly a year ago I overheard someone playing "From Left to Right" and the song "Children at Play" at my work place. My eyes popped wide open and I asked the individual, "Who is this, and can I buy it!?" That is the type of impact that this album can have, even for those who never thought they could enjoy Jazz. Bill Evans opened up doors for my musical libary and my musical mind.
