Few musicians seemed less likely to make an impact on the New York jazz scene in the late Fifties than Bill Evans(1929-80), whose introspective solos and delicate touch were far removed from what was commonly considered "hard bop." Yet Evans was indeed heard, and quickly became one of the most influential musicians on any instrument of the last 40 years.

Bill Evans was a genius - playing unaccompanied piano enhances his brilliance. This album is a must for any piano loving jazz buffs.

songs of despair 2 Mar 2007
By JEAN-MARIE JUIF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record ( and its pair, volume 2) may be the most underrated record by the immense Bill Evans.Both volumes were recorded on the same day, January 10,1963, and they are exceptionnal. In fact, this is some of the greatest stuff Bill Evans ever recorded. One and a half year after Scott LaFaro's tragic death, Bill Evans is alone in a studio, and simply plays some of the greatest tunes he ever recorded. This is a very desperate album, a very sad one, but the music is completely outstanding. This is simply beauty. Bill's version of "my favorite things" is absolutely incredible, and so are the other tunes. These records have always been among my favorites by Bill Evans. Magnificent, essential to every jazz lover. You can't miss it!!!

First-rate album 26 July 1999
By James Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album sets the standard for an intimate session by a solo piano. It's hard to find music more vulnerable yet precise in technique and finesse. This album is peaceful yet heartbreaking at the same time.

A Window Into Bill's Soul 5 Sep 2008
By Eric Flagg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was not ready for this. As an admitted Bill Evans fanatic, I own about 75% of all of his available recordings and constantly search for new recordings of his. Last week I ordered both volumes 1 and 2 of The Solo Sessions. After listening to Bill thousands of times, my first listen to these solo recordings blew me away. I cried three times while listening. You can feel the pain that Bill is going through during this period when he was strung out on heroin. These recordings are the most intimate, reflective, emotionally-raw ones I have heard Bill make. If I had to choose one recording session to have sat in on during Bill's career, it would have been this one. Next to the original Village Vanguard recordings, these are, in my opinion, the most essential Bill Evans albums ever released.

One of my favorite things... 19 April 2002
By Jonathan Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is worth it just for the introductory notes on the "My Favorite Things/Easy to Love/Baubles, Bangles, and Beads" medley. I worked with my piano teacher for a couple hours trying to figure them out. Although, I now can play the intro note for note, it just doesn't have that Bill Evans feel. There is only one Bill Evans and if you can purchase only one Bill Evans CD, this would be one to consider.
