This is one of my favourite CDs; I have periods when I play it on loop and I never get tired of it. Although I like jazz a lot, I hadn't really heard much Bill Evans until I was introduced to him by way of this guitar tribute by Niño Josele. Niño Josele is a flamenco guitarist, though the guitar here is not so much flamenco as just simply good, jazzy, soft and in some ways almost Brazilian. The first piece, "Peace piece" is moving, delicate, and just utterly beautiful - one of those pieces that you have to listen to completely, paying attention only to the music, forgetting everything else around you. Number 4 is sung by Freddy Cole (Nat King Cole's brother), and is fabulous and moving. And flamenco singer Estrella Morente is simply brilliant on Minha. I think I can safely say that anyone who enjoys jazz and good music will very much welcome this cd into their collection. Sit back, close your eyes and enjoy...!

Excellent original album. Being both a fan of Bill Evans and Spanish classic guitar music, this album was a genuinely good surprise. Relaxing and inspiring music. It was great to find such a great music artist. PS: Babies also like it very much!

5.0 out of 5 stars an exotic, exceptional tribute album 18 July 2007
By JAQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After many listenings over several months, this cd remains fresh. Nino ("the kid") Josele crosses over from flamenco to the jazz mainstream with apparent ease. He adapts some classic Bill Evans compositions (Peace Piece, Waltz for Debby, Turn Out the Stars) to his acoustic guitar; he also plays several ballads associated with Evans, and adds several surprises that I didn't know Evans had recorded (The Peacocks, The Dolphin, Hullo Bolinas, Minha). Marc Johnson is featured in duets on several tracks; Joe Lovano, Tom Harrell, and Jerry Gonzales are also heard to subtle effect. Estrella Morente is heard on "Minha," and Freddy Cole sings Leonard Cohen's "I Do It For Your Love." Extraordinary variety in the music; it's aesthetically unified but never monotonous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant surprise 8 Jun. 2008
By Electronic tech - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard the first cut of this CD on KCCK-FM and was blown away by the great solo on Bill Evan's Peace Piece. On that alone, I bought the CD, usually a recipe for disaster. I can't tell you how many CDs I own that have The One Good Song. Not this one. At first I was a little bothered when I saw it wasn't all solo but not after listening; what a bunch of ringers he has assembled here!
He found Evan's last bassist, Marc Johnson, and another Evans favorite, Tom Harrell. It doesn't stop there; Freddie Cole does a cameo on the Paul Simon tune I Do It For You. Freddie is SO-O-O much more than "Nat's younger brother". He can take any song and sing it for YOU brah/sistah.Joe Lavano does a great Stan Getz on one of Stan's faves, The Peacocks. Besides Harrell, there's another nice trumpet solo from the guy who brought jazz to Sr. Josele, Jerry Gonzales, on Never Let Me Go. I should probably wait on writing this until I've listened a hundred times more but I don't think you'll be disappointed. Grind on some tapas, open a Rioja, light the candles...

P.S. As an audiophile, I can tell you the engineers did a GREAT job.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable -- To a Point 3 July 2011
By Walter J. Jamieson Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One would prefer not be disagreeable about this mostly pleasant, well-intentioned CD. However, to be honest: Josele doesn't improvise, he doesn't even play variations, he embellishes. "Flamenco Sketches" by Evans and Miles would have been a far better choice here than "Peace Piece" since it has a form, which "Peace Piece" does not, and because its fourth scale -- the one that gives "Flamenco Sketches" its name -- would have suited Josele perfectly. It would have given shape to the performance and been much more in keeping with his style and sound. The inclusion of the two singers is terribly jarring; the album would have been more unified and more enjoyable as an Evans tribute without them. The electric drums, if that's what they are, on "Turn Out the Stars" are very jarring too; one can learn to tolerate them over time because Evan's composition is so familiar and winning, but it's not easy. Aside fron "Peace Piece" the selection of tunes is wonderful, all of them favorites. Johnson, Lovano and Harrell are among the best and bring some very welcome Jazz to what is otherwise not a Jazz record, despite the Evans inspiration. Johnson is wonderful throughout, and Lovano plays "The Peacocks" beautfully. (It's hard to get enough of that tune -- Evans alone, Evans with Getz, etc., etc. The more the merrier.)
If those complaints of mine don't bother you, you will like this. If they do bother you, you might enjoy it once in a while anyway.
