5.0 out of 5 stars Pure perfection from the greatest pianist of them all., 3 Dec. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: New Conversations (Audio CD)
This is Evans' 3rd attempt at an overdub album, and by far the best. While the first two were excellent, they were still a bit rough around the edges. With "New Conversations" he has obviously ironed out the creases from the first 2, and created, what is in my opinion, one of the great jazz albums. He always seems truly at home when he is on his own, and with the introduction of the fender rhodes, he adds a variety to the texture, he is always perfectly in control of the music.
He goes from the beautiful, melodic ballads ("For Nennette" and "Reflections in D") to driving tunes, where he swings hard ("Nobody Else But Me").
In some of his trio work, it can seem as if the band are a little too caught up in themselves to care about the audience, but in this album, the 3 "Bills" interact beautifully, giving a perfect performance full of passion and feeling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely except for the electrics, 11 July 2011
This review is from: New Conversations (International Release) (Audio CD)
The other review of this is partly right, but Evans could well have done without the added 'texture' of the F-R 'piano'. Perhaps it exactly transcribed how crappy he sometime felt. Unfortunately it communicates this all too well. See my review of 'Intuition' for more anti-electric rant. Otherwise this is as good as its predecessors - not startlingly better - and they aren't dragging the sleazeball musical machine around with them. Fans will manage to work round it. And if you can bear it, or actually like it (really??) then you will be happy.
