I've got a few Bill Evans albums and this is one of my favourites. Reading through Bill's biography there is a whole mountain of records available because of the number of projects that he worked on, the most famous being Kind of Blue, and also the amazing number of live recordings from Europe and America. On this album he is in his familiar trio format recorded in the studio in 1977 but released after his death (I think) in 1981. The other two musicians are Eddie Gomez and Eliot Zigmund who perform to a high standard. For most people Bill Evans's playing is characterised by tone and his own chord voicings. On this record the piano sound is marvellous. The piano playing is fantastic and the songs are great. If you are looking to try some jazz but are worried by being confronted with a wave of dissonance give this album a go. You may end up by starting a Bill Evans collection and there's plenty to chose from.
