Evans' best trio ever - sublime jazz.,

This review is from: I Will Say Goodbye (Audio CD)
Bill Evans is a giant among pianists and his recordings are a legacy of some of the best trio work ever recorded in jazz. His recordings with bassist Eddie Gomez are some of his all-time best ones, particularly this sublime trio with Eliot Zigmund on drums. Some of the drummers Evans used, like Marty Morrell, are a bit busy for my taste, but here Zigmund gets it exactly right. He is inventive and fresh yet never dominating, and his playing is full of interesting nuances. There is a very high level of sensitivity and musicality in this trio, almost a sense of classical chamber music. Every note has a purpose - there is no show or bravado, and Evans seems as comfortable and relaxed as he ever was in a trio setting. Pure class and a delight to listen to.
